Apple PowerBook G4

PC Magazine

  • Excerpt: The head-turning silver titanium case will make you do a double take. The 15.2-inch-wide screen with 1,152-by-768 resolution will hook you, while the 1-inch-thick, 5.3-pound package will make you drool. Looks aside, the heart of this Apple PowerBook G4 is the 500-MHz G4 processor.

Apple 17-Inch PowerBook G4

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This was one of the first notebooks to move to the 802.11g wireless standard. Though incompatible with our standard PC-based wireless tests, in informal testing its signal reached up to 140 feet, and its DVD playback lasted 2:22, which is enough for most movies.

Apple PowerBook G4 (15-inch) (Iss. 21 2004)

PC Magazine
8 January 2005
  • Conclusion: If it's an Apple portable you want, the PowerBook G4 lets you walk around in style. If it's too much for your tastes, you can opt for the smaller, lighter, and more affordable Apple iBook (12-inch). If it's a toss up between a PC and a Mac, the HP Pavilion dv1000 is a great multimedia buy.
  • Pros: Computing luxury at its best. Good performance. Backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: Screen isn't as bright as other multimedia notebooks. Expensive.
