New Cheaper, Faster Powerbooks Released
Apple has announced new Powerbooks, though they are only a slight speed bump and a RAM upgrade, not the new form factor G5’s that everyone had hoped for.
You can now get 8x Superdrives in them, as well as Bluetooth 2.0, faster hard drives, more RAM standard, etc.
Prices now range from $1,499 to $2,699, which is about what they used to charge for a refurbished model.
Now is the time to buy a Powerbook in my opinion, for sure. This is the cheapest, most stable they will be, since this is likely the last revision of the current form factor. I wouldn’t think they would make another speed boost of the G4, the next one will probably be a G5, with higher prices, and more possible problems. So buy one now!
