Apple Titanium PowerBook G4

 

Truly portable editing environments with sufficient muscle to do real work were few and far between just one year ago. Now, with inexpensive laptop computer power increasing, there are an increasing number of choices for those who need a mobile...

Rugged, light and slim, Useful multi-monitor feature, Ready to edit, out of the box

Only basic editing software included, Touchpad is not very well-suited for video editing

We applaud the efforts of Apple for incorporating video editing as a standard feature on all its laptops, Apple has done much to encourage us that creating high-quality movies is as easy as making music CDs, or writing a letter. Keep up the good work,...

Better Display, More Speed For Apple PowerBook

 

I used to save the heavy Photoshoppery for my 2x800 tower.No more. I jack my Canon G2 into my calibrated TiBook, and can do 95+% of my PS work on this uniprocessor.10.1.5 really FLIES on this machine. And the ATI 7500 is right in the strike zone for...

Product Specifications

Take a high-performance PowerPC G4 processor, add a wide-screen display, and enclose it all in a lightweight titanium case. Apple has just created the PowerBook G4 - and redefined portable computing. If you need the utmost power for creative design, education, or business, the PowerBook G4 is ready to provide it wherever you go. Making a notebook computer the slimmest and lightest in its category shouldn't have to mean making compromises in performance and functionality. What makes a supercomputer "super" is its ability to execute at least one billion floating-point operations per second. It's a staggering measure of speed known as a "gigaflop". In addition, the PowerPC G4 can perform four (in some cases eight) 32-bit floating-point calculations in a single cycle - two to four times faster than traditional processors. The PowerPC G4 with Velocity Engine works with the PowerPC architecture to accelerate the data-intensive processing required by next-generation video, voice and graphics applications. Among the G4 key features is a vector permute function capable of rearranging data in the registers - a priceless benefit when converting data from one format to another (often necessary with voice, video and graphics applications, which typically need to save data in a number of different formats). These vector-processing acceleration advantages give the G4 microprocessor a significant edge when it comes to fast visualization of large data sets and intensive math for real-time simulations, making the PowerPC G4 perfect for everything from digital video, graphics and 3D games to astronomy, the biosciences and predictive modeling.
