Apple announces new PowerBooks
Wednesday October 19, 2005

Apple today announced new PowerBooks with higher-resolution displays and up to one hour more battery life on the 15 and 17-inch models. In addition, every new PowerBook now includes a DVD burning SuperDrive with prices starting at US$1,499.

The new higher-resolution PowerBooks provide significantly more screen real estate and include the 17-inch PowerBook with a 1680-by-1050 pixel resolution -- 36 percent more than the previous generation -- and the 15-inch PowerBook with a 1440-by-960 pixel resolution -- 26 percent more than the previous generation. Ideal for business and creative professionals, the new 15- and 17-inch PowerBooks make reading text and viewing images even easier with brighter displays -- up to 46 percent brighter on the 17-inch model.
