Apple PowerBook G4 15-inch disappears from Apple’s online store

The 15″ G4 Powerbook is no longer available for sale via Apple’s online store.

“It was there yesterday, but was gone this morning,” MacDailyNews reader “mw” writes us in an email.

Go ahead, try it for yourself: Apple Store: Powerbook G4. Only 17- or 12-inch models are available.

  1. Maybe they turned it into a cube. Apple should work with Erno Rubik. Imagine a video cube with an LCD on each of the 54 (scratch-proof) faces. A six faced multimedia tile game? Forget thinking outside the box. Be the box.

    Ty Webb: Just be the ball, be the ball, be the ball. You’re not being the ball Danny.
    Danny Noonan: It’s hard when you’re talking like that.
    Ty Webb: I like you Betty.
    Danny Noonan: It’s Danny sir.
    Ty Webb: Danny.

  2. Well, if you were in need of a 15″ PowerPC notebook for PhotoShop for the next year until Adobe gets their Universal asses in gear, what were you waiting for? The MacBook Pro was announced on Jan. 10, and started shipping last week. They gave you almost 6 weeks to get your order in. You snooze, you lose. You better get yourself a 17″ PowerBook while they are still available!

    But seriously, the PowerBook G4 wasn’t much of a performer to begin with (compared to a PowerMac at least), so how much slower will PhotoShop run in Rosetta on a 2GHz Core Duo vs. a 1.67GHz G4? They’ve gotta be pretty close to being on par. Guess I’ll find out in a couple of hours when my MacBook Pro arrives…
