Apple Updates PowerBook Line
8:12 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Apple has once again quietly updated its PowerBook line of laptop computers. Notable changes to each include processor speed bumps, with a 1.5Ghz G4 for the 12-inch, and up to 1.67Ghz G4s for the 15 and 17-inch models. Other features include an 8x SuperDrive, Bluetooth 2.0, an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with up to 128MB for the 15 and 17-inchers, and two new technologies - the scrolling TrackPad and the Sudden Motion Sensor.

The new scrolling TrackPad allows for easier scrolling, and users can simply drag two fingers across the pad in the direction they wish to scroll. The Sudden Motion Sensor is used to protect valuable data in case of sudden drops:

The Sudden Motion Sensor senses change in axis position and accelerated movement. In the event of a drop or fall, the Sudden Motion Sensor instantly parks the hard drive heads so they wont scratch the disks on impact, lessening the risk of damage and improving your chances of retrieving valuable data. When the Sudden Motion Sensor senses your PowerBook is once again level, it unlocks the hard drive heads automatically.
The 17-inch also features an optical digital audio input for those looking for a little more clarity in their recordings.
