Apple releases new 733MHz Power Mac

The move is the result of Motorola's ability to deliver more of the 733MHz PowerPC G4 chips than originally forecast, Apple said in a statement. The move will now put two 733MHz machines atop Apple's line of professional desktops: the original model equipped with Apple's SuperDrive CD-RW/DVD-R combination and the new model with just the CD-RW. The new model costs $6595, while the DVD-R equipped model runs $7495 from Apple's online store.

Both models come with 256MB of SDRAM (synchronous dynamic RAM), a 60GB ATA hard disk, an NVidia GeForce2 MX video card with 32MB of SDRAM, a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet card, a built-in 56Kbps V.90 modem and iTunes and iMovie 2 software.

Apple will release Mac OS X, a fundamental revision to its flagship operating system and a product the company is pinning much of its hope for the future on, on 24 March.

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
