Apple released an update this week to its Powerbook line of notebooks. The new 15″ and 17″ version will feature a higher resolution screen than the previous models. The 15″ will feature 1440 x 960 and the 17″ will featue 1680 x 1050. For you non nerds out there, that means you get to squeeze more stuff onto the screen. Very very cool.

Also of note is that all 3 notebooks will now support the 30″ Apple Cinema HD display. To power a monitor with that kind of resolution on a laptop is worthy of note. All models will now feature the SuperDrive (DVD recorder) standard.

The new machines are now shipping and will only cost you:

  • 1.5 GHz, 12″ Powerbook – $1,499
  • 1.67 GHz 15″ Powerbook – $1,999
  • 1.67 GHz 17″ Powerbook – $2,499

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
