About the PowerBook
Powerbooks were produced from 1991 until 2006, when they were replaced by the MacBook range.
The early range was hugely successful; 40% of early laptops bought were Powerbooks. They were amongst the first laptops to make use of many features that are taken for granted today, including trackpads, a keyboard with space infront to rest the wrists (rather than behind where it is wasted) and an Ethernet port.
The G4 Powerbook, launched in 2001, introduced a titanium skin and a 15" screen. Processors became more powerful, increasing to 1 GHz in 2003.
From 2003 both 12" and 17" screen options were available with aluminium bodies, and the backlit keyboard used throughout the MacBook range was introduced, as was WiFi networking, Bluetooth, and DVD burning.
By 2005 1.5GHz and 1.67GHz processors were available, as was 512Mb RAM and a 100 Gb hard drive.
