Apple PowerBook G4/867 12"

The Apple Macintosh PowerBook G4/867 12" features an 867 MHz PowerPC 7451(?) (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and 256k DDR SRAM on-chip level 2 cache (3.), 256 MB of PC2100 DDR SDRAM, a 40.0 GB Ultra ATA/100 (4200 RPM) hard drive, a slot-loading 8X/24X/10X/24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive, an NVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go (AGP 4X) video controller with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM, built-in Bluetooth 1.1, and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) wireless networking (with an optional card) in an attractive aluminium alloy case with a 12.1" 1024x768 TFT XGA active-matrix display. Apple states that the PowerBook G4/867 12" is its "smallest notebook ever", which as some have noted, is true if one measures the volume of the notebook, but compared to the long-discontinued PowerBook Duo 210, the 12" G4 is thinner (by 0.22 inches), but it is slightly deeper (by 0.1 inch) and heavier (by 0.4 pounds). Nevertheless, it packs a lot of power in a sleek compact case at a competitive price. Custom configurations were also available.
