Apple PowerBook G4 M8592B/ALiterally red hot laptop (209 words)
by davidmiddleton87 - written on 23/04/10 (Useful, 18 readings)
with more and more dead pixels appearing every few months. This laptop has been used daily for a good few years but even so for the original price (£1000) it should lasting better than this. The worst part though is how hot it gets the G4 and then later the G5 suffered from overheating issues from the processor and poor cooling. Apple wanted a quiet laptop/desktop but the processor couldn t survive without more powerful cooling. In the end design won over functionality and this is what cripples the product long ...
Apple PowerBook G4 M9677B/AA Beautiful Machine (218 words)

When it comes to design, Apple have always been at the forefront - this laptop is no different. Of course, at this point, an old PowerBook is pretty outdated; but it s capable of running every PPC app out there, especially if you bulk up the RAM (Pretty cheap now). It s my main machine, and I picked it up secondhand for a very reasonable price. If you re just after a machine that will do the job, then this should suffice. The 15" screen is very nice, though the resolution is low by today s standards. The aluminium casing is gorgeous, but the inside is made of (nice) plastic - after a few years of use, mine has a crack at the side and the area my wrist sits has become ...

The G3 PowerBook is a great laptop machine. It's a little bit weighty, but I think the hassle of lugging it around is far outweighed by the joy of using it. As a Macophile I can never sing the praises of Mac OS enough, I find it so much more intuitive than Windows as an operating system, and as a consequence the powerbook is very easy to operate. It's got bags of RAM, decent clock speed - especially if you go after the 400 version - and is easily maintained and upgradeable. The pop out compartments for battery, CD drive, DVD etc, make specing the machine to ones personal taste a doddle. The battery has loads of hours in it, particularly with the economy ...
