Apple Updates PowerBook Line
Many expected a PowerBook G5 announcement at MacWorld - but that didn’t happen. Then people expected it would come any day, but that didn’t happen either. Finally, today, Apple announced an update to their PowerBook line - but the G5 processor remains out of the equation. Instead, what differentiates the new PowerBooks from the older models are increased processor speeds on (up to 1.67GHz on the 15 and 17-inch models, and up tp 1.5GHz on the 12-inch), and the availability of 100GB drives on the 15 and 17-inch models. You also have the option of adding an 8x SuperDrives to any of the new PowerBooks. Lastly, the ATI Radeon card has been bumped up from 64MB to 128MB, and the notebooks now support Bluetooth 2.0. While that is a mouthful, we would still have preferred a G5 processor to be thrown in.
