PowerBook G4 with DVD Burning

Apple has increased the speed of its flagship Titanium PowerBook G4 notebooks to a maximum of 1GHz, up from a previous high of 800MHz.

Sending out the message that not only Windows-based notebooks feature portable DVD burning, the new top-of-the-line Titanium PowerBook G4 boasts a slot-loading SuperDrive. This allows writing of DVD-R discs at 1x, CD-R discs at 8x, CD-RW discs at 4x, and the reading of DVDs at 6x and CDs at 24x.

Apple has also equipped the top $6499 PowerBook with a speedy 64MB DDR ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics controller, 512MB of SDRAM, a 60GB hard disk, Gigabit Ethernet, and integrated 802.11 wireless networking. The widescreen 15.2in display capable of a resolution of 1280x854 has been retained.

Apple has also updated the more mid-consumer iBook line, upping the PowerPC G3 processor to 800MHz and increasing graphics performance with the new ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 graphics controller. iBooks are now available from $2195, depending on configuration. Apple also offers build-to-order machines.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
