Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - November 5, 2002

Apple may have finally hit the right note with a major upgrade to its Titanium PowerBook G4 notebook line.

With PowerPC G4 processors running at up to 1 GHz, Apple claims it has the industry's first slot-loading SuperDrive for reading and burning both CDs and DVDs and the fastest mobile graphics processor. It also features the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 and integrated 802.11 wireless networking in a 1-inch thick, 5.4-pound Titanium enclosure with a 15.2 inch (diagonal) display*. But starting at $2,299 US (about $3595 Canadian and 2267 Euro) it ain't cheap. On the other hand, if you've got the dosh, "With SuperDrive, customers can create and burn custom DVDs using Apple's pre- installed iDVD software, the world's easiest-to-use application for creating DVDs that play in consumer DVD players," says Apple. "And with Disc Burner software integrated into Mac OS X 'Jaguar' PowerBook G4 customers can easily burn data CDs and DVDs of up to 4.7GB directly from the Finder. Apple's award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications including iPhoto for organizing and sharing digital photos, iMovie 2 for creating digital movies, iTunes 3 for creating a digital music library and iDVD 2 for creating and burning custom DVDs are included with every new PowerBook G4."

Apple say the PowerBook G4 comes with 256MB of RAM in the 867MHz model and 512MB of RAM in the 1GHz model, and is expandable to 1GB of RAM. Moreover, its Ultra ATA/ 66 interface allows the transfer of large video files in real time directly from a DV camcorder.

PowerBook G4 apparently also has built-in antennas and an AirPort Card slot for 802.11-based AirPort wireless communications at up to 11 megabits per second.
