Ok well...I own a powerbook g3 series. By today's standards its slow and out of date (well that's what the titanium owners would say!). My particular model has a 233mhz processor...and a 128 memory.. I just wanted to put my opinion forward that just because the critics always say bigger and faster is better...there really isn't that much difference! Until last year I was studying for a moving image course involving animation and film. I did end up buying a G4 mac last year because I knew it would handle video footage a lot better..but until that point my laptop was perfectly fine and still is!...I got the memory upgraded to the max (192) and ...

While the new Titanium PowerBook knocks the socks off this Black PowerBook G3 (FireWire) aka the Prismo, this powerbook is still a beast. The battery life of approximately 5 hours means that I take it to work or college and don't need to worry about taking the power supply (small and cute as it is). The video capabilities are encompassed in an S-video out (for TV's) and VGA out - both permitting video mirroring or an extended desktop. Having both USB and Firewire connectors I'm able to happily plug in an external keyboard, mouse and Zip drive while using the faster ports for my DVcamcorder and external hard disk. Networking is possible through ... Read the complete review

I ve been using a PowerBook G3 for almost a year, and can definitely recommend it. It's excellent value, a very reliable machine. This laptop is actually as good as it looks. The large screen is of good quality, the processor is very fast, and the operating system is user friendly. I also like the keyboard. However, if you want to carry a laptop with you on a DAILY basis, the G3 might be a bit big and an iBook might be more convenient. I use the PowerBook as a desktop replacement, taking it with me every now and then. Travelling is easy, b/c voltage is adaptable worldwide, and with the location control panel it is no hassle to set up ... Read the complete review

I've owned a Powerbook G3 since it came out; I've got the old fat one. I use a wide variety of computers; PCs, Macs, Desktops, Laptops and this is the best machine I've ever used (although it's a bit slow compared to the new ones). I run Linux on mine, so don't think I'm just a Mac evangelist, and it performs beautifully. The screen is still the best I've seen on a laptop - it's twice as bright as my (much newer) IBM ThinkPad. (so why did I buy the ThinkPad? I wanted a *tiny* laptop for travel) All the hardware is supported fine under Linux, from the PCMCIA slots to the built in modem to the SCSI port (NB you don't get SCSI on ...

I have owned a G3 PowerBook for about a year and a half and can find little to fault on this machine. It packs a lot of power into a slim design -- much better than the Windows stuff that I see other commuters on my train using. The design is also miles ahead of the competition. It has a sexy waist that you grip it by -- and that glowing apple, that is just such a brilliant feature. This is both a workhorse and an attention grabber. DVD watching while commuting never fails to impress the other passengers -- who sit back in awe as you watch Fight Club for the 33rd time on the 07.32 to Liverpool Street. It is a fast machine. My 400 MHz laptop ... Read the complete review
