Obituary – Bye Bye Powerbook G4


After over 3 years with the machine, my Powerbook G4 has come to the end of its life. Arriving it January 2003, the machine served it’s purpose well and did it with all the vigor one could expect of the PPC platform. The tragedy was not cause by obsolescence, but by the unforgiving force known as gravity. On October 21, 2006, the light above the island my kitchen fell and struck the victim on its LCD display. Full memorial of the final stages are in the gallery.

Thankfully, three days later, Apple graced the world with the new MacBook Pros with Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs. As of this Wednesday, I am the proud owner of a new MBP with 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 3 GB RAM, and a 160 GB hard drive.
