Backlit keyboard lights up automatically in low light; DVD-burning SuperDrive comes standard; built-in 802.11g and Bluetooth networking; attractive design; solid keyboard.
Doesn't outperform 15-inch Titanium model; awkward shape limits portability; weak standard warranty; no USB 2.0 ports.
"The 17-inch PowerBook is sexy, and it comes with great extras, but it's not much faster than the Titanium model."

This is the highest end of the powerbook aluminum series notebooks that Apple made. Even though it does not match the performance of today's Intel cpu's (not to mention huge memory banks of modern intel based laptops), it is the conomical thing to buy if you have a large investment in third party software that will run only on the powerpc macs. Until replacing that software becomes economically feasible (some of the software packages cost several thousand dollars, and replacing them would be a huge financial setback), this notebook will do just fine.
I needed the part for a friends computer and it just so happens that it is a rather part to find. Only 3 models of g4 laptops use this style of airport card and it will drive any tech nuts. Worked great, the seller was great and it arrived quickly.
I own this product and purchased this for my daughter. We are Mac addicts, just cannot afford the latest. I am well pleased with Mac and have used them for years. I encourage my friends to use the auction process as I do in obtaining replacements.
