Canon PowerShot D20

PC Magazine
31 May 2012

Apple 17-Inch PowerBook G4

Digital Pro Sound
26 February 2006
  • Conclusion: There are some things I haven't gotten into with this machine that you might be interested in. First is battery life. Apple advertises a battery life of about 4.5 hours, and that, from my testing, seems to be accurate.

Apple G4 Powerbook

HEXUS
7 July 2003
  • Excerpt: I have been devoted to the Intel and AMD driven field of computers since 1993, right up until I sold my Toshiba P3 850Mhz laptop a month ago. Searching for a new laptop that greatly exceeded my previous machine was a highly daunting task, but nevertheless exciting.
