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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
