My Dream PowerBook

I just bought my dream PowerBook. Here are the specs:

• 1.5GHz PowerPC G4 with 128MB Graphics Memory (ATI Mobility Radeon 9700)
• 512MB DDR333 SDRAM - 1 SO-DIMM (another 512 MB stick can be had cheaper elsewhere)
• 80GB Ultra ATA drive @ 5400 rpm
• SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW)
• Backlit Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English
• AirPort Extreme Card
• APP for PowerBook (w/ or w/o display) - Enrollment Kit
• 15.2-inch TFT Display

So now it is perfectly fine for Apple to release their new PowerBooks tomorrow at the same price, with either dual G4 processors or a low heat (ha ha) G5 chip in them.

Now I know some of you are shaking your heads. "Ken, you just bought a PowerMac G5, and you have a PowerBook G4, what in the world do you need with another PowerBook?" Ahh, but Simon didn't say. This baby is not for me. This is for our Student Publications Graduate Student Stephanie. She is a first time Mac buyer, and she is fed up with her Pentium III-powered Dell at home. Not wanting to buy another PC, she decided it was time to get a Mac. Viruses in her email were enough to bring her back from the Dark Side, but she also really enjoys using the Macs we have at work.

I am as exited to see this new PowerBook as she is, I cannot wait to see the speed difference between my 1 Ghz and the new 1.5 Ghz, with the 128 MB of graphics memory.

Fun fun fun, it should be here within a week.
