Titanium PowerBook G4 Reviewed at IMG
1:39 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

After spending a couple of weeks with Apple's new Titanium PowerBook G4, we were finally able to stop Chris Morin's drooling long enough for him to write a review. There is little doubt that this is one of the sleekest, sexiest portables Apple has produced. While the review is a bit lengthy, it is very detailed and contains everything you need to know about the PowerBook G4. Here are some of Chris' thoughts:

Titanium has become the material of choice for designers. Eyeglass frames and watch bands are just a couple new designer applications for this metal. Does this mean the Titanium PowerBook is a piece of jewelry? Well, just ask anyone who purchased one. They will definitely take care of it as such. My first Sherlock search was for an agent for Lloyds of London. The Titanium PowerBook, codenamed Mercury, has a form like none other. Comparing the PowerBook to those many portables I see weekly always brings a superior smile to my face. Their thick black plastic cases and small screens appear so Neanderthal when side by side with the svelte body of my new portable. Here is a Mac that, like the Cube and a few others, spills the elegance of the OS over to the case design. Since installing Mac OS X on this computer, that perception is only strengthened.
We'll be updating the article with benchmarks in the next week to satisfy all you number freaks. In the meantime, enjoy the Titanium PowerBook G4 review.
