Apple PowerBook G4

The Apple Macintosh PowerBook G4/1.0 features a 1.0 GHz (1000 MHz) PowerPC 7455 (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and 256k on-chip level 2 cache (3.), a 1.0 MB level 3 cache (DDR SDRAM) (4.), 512 MB of PC-133 SDRAM, a 60.0 GB Ultra ATA/66 (4200 RPM) hard drive, a slot-loading 1X/6X/8X/4X/24X SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW), an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 (AGP 4X) video controller with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM, and pre-installed AirPort wireless networking. The PowerBook G4/1.0 shares the same stunning 1-inch thick Titanium case, high-res 15.2" TFT widescreen display (1280x854), full-size keyboard, DVI connector, and lightweight power adapter as the earlier PowerBook G4 "DVI" models, but adds a faster PowerPC G4 processor, a faster video controller with more VRAM, and a slot-loading SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW). The SuperDrive addition is particularly notable as this is the first laptop to ship standard with such a drive. Custom configurations were also available.
