Gallery: The Evolution of the Apple Laptop



+ Add a Comment


The International Design Museum in Munich has a number of old Mac laptops on display, as well as several old desktop models. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.



One of the laptops I've owned was a PowerBook 2400, which I didn't see here. It was a very compact machine, with a 10.4" active matrix display, a full set of ports (unlike the Duo's), but it weighed only 4.3 pounds, like the Duos. Pbcentral has more info

Hey Castillocd and Maclife: I have a PowerbookG4 Aluminum 12". =O I know. Also, what do you guys think about the Chromebook? (If iPods and other mp3s/phones don't matter)



Yes, Apple Laptops became old enough to order a beer at a bar over a year ago...

...since 2001 I have been a satisfied and loyal Apple user; over this last decade I have (and still!) own:
1- Powerbook G4 Titanium - 2001
2- MacBook - 2006 ("Black")
3- MacBook Pro - 2011
Each laptop with an average lifespan of 5 years...not bad, huh? Can you say the same for your Apple computer? Which Apple do you use?



Hey guys,
Your picture of the titanium is the wrong picture. That is the aluminum powerbook. Just thought I'd let you know so you can correct it. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for catching that.
