Apple refreshes TiBook with faster G4

Big screen

Apple has been a busy spelling bee today, creating the eMac, an iMac, only with an 'e', not an 'i', for the impoverished schools sector, and refreshing its Titanium Powerbook range with a faster G4 processor.

Two new models are launched today, a 667MHz version (what's wrong with 666?, Apple; we know you're in league with the forces of darkness), and an 800 meg flavour. They are supplied with big screens - 15.2in at 23 per cent higher resolution - 1280-by-854 pixels; 1MB of level 3 cache; and integrated Gigabit Ethernet, a first for a notebook, Apple claims (although this features on earlier Ti Books).

The SRP for the slower box is $2,499, while the 800MHz Ti Book could be yours for $3,199. Add on VAT for Europe and you're talking one expensive notebook here.
