Overview

The Apple 12-inch PowerBook G4 is as powerful on the inside as it looks good on the outside.

Housed in a stunning, scratch- and stain-resistant aluminum alloy enclosure and weighing just 4.6 pounds, this diminutive powerhouse features a high-resolution 12.1" TFT XGA active-matrix display with brilliant 1024 x 768 pixel resolution. You'll marvel at the way this supersharp display fits into such a remarkably small frame: just 10.9" wide, 8.6" deep and 1.18" thin. Perfectly smooth on all surfaces, the 12-inch PowerBook has no doors, protruding latches or levers to break, no external buttons to accidentally press, and no sharp edges to catch on your clothing.

Built for Speed

The 1.5GHz PowerBook G4 delivers blazing-fast performance, thanks to the PowerPC G4 with Velocity Engine, which processes data in huge 128-bit chunks and accelerates the data-intensive processing required by next-generation video, voice, and graphics applications. You get 512MB of RAM and a 60GB hard drive.

Scroll Mate

Scrolling through web pages or large documents on a trackpad can challenge even the most nimble fingers. That's why every 12-inch PowerBook G4 features a new trackpad with scrolling capability. Just drag two fingers over the trackpad to scroll vertically and horizontally or pan around any active window. Change this feature to suit your needs: Customize your trackpad settings or turn off scrolling completely via System Preferences.

Handled with Care

Now the 12-inch PowerBook G4 is equipped to help protect your most valuable asset: your data. Apple's 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 won't 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.

Graphics, Designed

The 12-inch PowerBook ships with the NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 graphics processor and 64MB of dedicated DDR SDRAM, bringing crispness and clarity to your visual experience in every application.

Power on Display

The 12-inch PowerBook G4 comes with built-in support for DVI, ADC, VGA, S-video and composite video signals. And since the 12-inch PowerBook supports dual display mode and video mirroring, you can extend your work area or mirror your projects to an external projector, big-screen TV or display--even Apple's gorgeous, flat-panel 20" or 23" Cinema Display. Simply connect your Cinema Display or TV to the mini-DVI port via the Apple mini-DVI to DVI adapter (included) or the Apple mini-DVI to video adapter (sold separately).

Wander Wirelessly

The 12-inch PowerBook G4 comes with AirPort Extreme built in, so you're ready for 54-Mbps wireless networking right out of the box. And with thousands of wireless-enabled "hot spots" in hotels, airport lounges, coffee shops, and bookstores around the world, you can get online from practically anywhere. What's more, you can use your PowerBook G4, AirPort Extreme and Rendezvous (which seamlessly recognizes and links computers and digital devices to each other) to create your own secure wireless network.

Get to Know Bluetooth 2.0

In addition to AirPort Extreme, you'll also find Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (enhanced data rate) built into the new 12" PowerBook G4. Bluetooth 2.0 now lets you connect digital devices wirelessly up to 3 times faster than its predecessors. Use iSync to synchronize your personal information among various Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as your PowerBook, mobile phone and Palm OS-based handheld. And Bluetooth 2.0 lets you take advantage of GPRS connectivity to check your email from anywhere--a benefit that comes in handy on those occasions when an 802.11 wireless hot spot isn't available.

Port Authority

The PowerBook G4 features ports accommodating FireWire 400, for connecting external hard drives and DV cameras, and USB 2.0, for connecting graphics tablets, digital cameras, printers, and scanners.

Feel the Burn

Though it's the smallest portable Apple has ever shipped, the 12-inch PowerBook G4 packs formidable processing power for graphic design and editing digital video--not to mention playing 3-D games, listening to music, and watching DVD movies between flights. The Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) gives you the versatility of a CD burner and DVD reader in one.

The PowerBook G4 comes with Mac OS X 10.3, iLife '05, QuickBooks for Mac new User Edition, and a collection of graphics tools including Art Directors Toolkit, Zinio Reader, FileMaker Pro Trial, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and Graphic Converter.
