New 12.1in and 17in PowerBooks

Macworld Expo San Francisco 2003: Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the new 12.1in PowerBook G4 line (beginning at $3995) in addition to the new top-of-the-line $6995 17in widescreen PowerBook. The latter boasts a resolution of 1440x990, 512MB of SDRAM, a 64MB NVIDIA GeForce 440 Go graphics controller, DVD burner and extras such as the new 800Mbps FireWire 2 port and Gigabit Ethernet.

Jobs also introduced a couple of new software products during the show, including Keynote and the company’s new Web browser, Safari.

A presentation software package, Keynote includes professionally designed themes, typography, pro-quality image resizing, animated charts and tables, and cinematic-quality transitions. Available for $US99, Keynote imports and exports PowerPoint, QuickTime, and PDF files.

Safari is Apple’s own implementation of a standards-compliant Web browser. Built around KHTML using open source code, Safari boasts great bookmark and download managers, and a new time-saving SnapBack navigation button. The software is available from Apple’s Web site as a public Beta version.

Apple’s iApplications have been bundled together to make a new suite called iLife. The bundle will include iTunes, iPhoto 2, iMovie 3 and iDVD 3 and promises tighter-than-ever integration between all the solutions.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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.

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