PowerBook brimming with memory on chip release

Apple's newest laptop is capable of holding up to 1GB of RAM with its two memory expansion slots. Prior to Trans' release of the 512MB SDRAM SO-DIMM, the laptop's memory limit was capped at 512MBs.

Trans designed the memory device to fit in the bottom and the top expansion slots in Apple's Titanium PowerBook. It is a 64-bit wide, 144-pin memory device and built to conform to the official specifications of the machine, the company said.

Apple first started shipping its PowerBook G4 Titanium laptops on 31 January after unveiling the sleek machine at the MacWorld Expo earlier that month.

The 1-inch think, 5.3-pound laptop has a 15.2-inch display, slot-loading DVD drive, integrated modem and networking, USP and FireWire ports, 30G bytes of hard disk space and 802.11 wireless-networking support. It comes with a PowerPC G4 processor at speeds of up to 500MHz.

Released following Apple's lackluster launch of the G4 Cube, company officials said Wednesday when reporting better-than-expected earnings for the second quarter that sales of the Titanium helped boost profits. The company said it shipped 115,000 notebooks in the second quarter.

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

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
