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.

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.)

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
