“Still have my Powerbook G4 1.67 Ghz and cant live...”

Written on: 09/01/2010

Still have my Powerbook G4 1.67 Ghz and cant live without it !
Still looks like the day I bought it, now has a fresh 250 Gig HD, new battery,
and power supply. Macbook Pro? What's the rush ???
I am running Leopard 10.5.8 on it and its fast for all my needs . ( 2 Gig RAM )
The PPC is far from over...
And much prefer the all silver look and awesome keyboard over the newer unibody
design with the annoying chicklet keyboard.
I have I life, I work, and Office 2008 on board and it coasts along… Read Full Review

“Hello ! ”

Written on: 06/12/2009

Hello !

I have to put in my two cents on this topic. I have owned several Macs, PC's
and everything in between. My Powerbook G4 1.67Ghz is a true marvel and keeps me up late, and I love it !!
Using this keyboard is addictive ! The screen clarity is equally addictive !
This laptop is in a league by itself, never ( Knock wood ) gave me any remote
signs of doom, just installed a new battery and changed the power supply for a new unit, its as good as new. I am running OS X 10.5.8 leopard with 2… Read Full Review

“I have owned a last-generation Powerbook G4 for nearly...”

Written on: 20/07/2009

I have owned a last-generation Powerbook G4 for nearly four years — knock on wood — and it has been consistently reliable the entire time. Although I could probably do with adding more the machine's 512 mb of RAM, it still performs fairly well despite its age. The biggest downside to having an old Powerbook is that my battery no longer works for more than about 30 seconds on its own, so it needs to be plugged in at all times. For the last year or so it hasn't been notifying me when the battery… Read Full Review

“I've now had my G4 powerbook for 5 years and it's...”

Written on: 20/10/2008 by a6rnh (4 reviews written)

I've now had my G4 powerbook for 5 years and it's still going strong although a little slower which is to expected. Still does everything I need, sorts photos, video editing, web browsing, email, etc etc. an old round top dog!
Its the 1.25 ghz, 15 inch model with bluetooth, wireless, backlit keyboard and dvd burner which cost me over £2000 at the time! Now the same specs are about £1300!… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2007 by keenkenneth (8 reviews written)

The Apple Powerbook G4 was the best thing available when it came out but some people had problems with the screen hinges breaking leaving the laptop in two parts! It was the first laptop to be able to edit video up to broadcast quality. I would buy another the same if this one was lost or broke down… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/05/2006 by tattysquawk (4 reviews written)

I've had 17" Apple PowerBook G4 for just over a year. With 512mb ram it works like a dream. I often have several applications running at once and use ram eating graphic s/w, never yet have I had a problem. The screen is excellent. All in all this is about the best bit if kit I've come across (short of Unix boxes in the workplace)… Read Full Review

“The 1.33Mhz version of the mid sized Apple PowerBook...”

Written on: 26/06/2004 by fiveoftwo (2 reviews written)

The 1.33Mhz version of the mid sized Apple PowerBook G4 is a full speed ahead, fully featured laptop that is capable of replacing your desktop machine in 90% of real world cases.
Apples stand out industrial design ensures that this machine looks as good as it goes and will certainly ensure envious looks should you wish to use it on the train or in public, while massive connectivity (Firewire 400, 800, USB USB2, Airport, Blutooth, Rendevouz and Gigabit ethernet) ensure that where ever you use it… Read Full Review
