Finally, though just a few hours earlier than expected, Apple has quietly launched their new G4 Powerbooks. Faster Processor, HDD and better BT + superdrive that supports wider range of DVDs and a few extra features. Check it out at apple.com.sg :thumbsup:

Wow...the new powerbook can SMS* too








*SMS stands for sudden motion sensor, which parks the hard drive heads so they won’t scratch the disks when you drop the powerbook. Wonder how many powerbooks were used for the drop tests :D

btw, the new track pad with scrolling capability sounds interesting....are there any 3rd party software that can do that too?

Go back to the store where u bought ur powerbook, sit down on da floor, scream, kick ur legs, cry and bang ur fists. They might pay some attention to u ;)

That's life and technology for u. Shit happens. Buy when u need it. But the most important thing is to buy what u need. ;)

Yah. Totally agree with you man. Electronics are especially bad when it comes to change: fast & furious. :bsmilie:

The same goes to DSLR ma! Now you buy a Nikon D70, then later come out with a better spec and cheaper DSLR...it is all the same la...consumer electronics!
Nowadays there isn't anything that can last you for life...maybe except for Leica M cameras? ;p

Dun liddat... If u all break hearts den I have to break my own head liao... I'm still running on a G3 and its running on fumes liao.... Yesterday notice my monitor dim and brighten little automatically and a restart becomes a forced shutdown.

Tried everything including hitting the PMU switch, still no avail. :(

I juz hope that it can last me at least till December... :(
