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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
