Posted on Wednesday, October 19 2005 @ 22:14:05 CEST by


Apple today made its PowerBook G4 line of notebook computers even more desirable for business and creative professionals with higher-resolution displays and up to one hour more battery life on the 15- and 17-inch models. In addition, every new PowerBook now includes a DVD burning SuperDrive with prices starting at just $1,499.

The new higher-resolution PowerBooks provide significantly more screen real estate and include the 17-inch PowerBook with a 1680-by-1050 pixel resolution—36 percent more than the previous generation—and the 15-inch PowerBook with a 1440-by-960 pixel resolution—26 percent more than the previous generation. Ideal for business and creative professionals, the new 15- and 17-inch PowerBooks make reading text and viewing images even easier with brighter displays—up to 46 percent brighter on the 17-inch model.
