Apple Macintosh PowerBook G4 Model A1106
The PowerBook G4, the last professional Apple notebook series to use the PowerPC processor, features ultrathin titanium or aluminum case designs.
The PowerBook G4/1.5 15" (Sudden Motion Sensor/Bluetooth 2.0+EDR) features a 1.5 GHz PowerPC 7447a (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and 512k on chip level 2 cache, 512 MB of PC2700 DDR SDRAM, an 80 GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive (5400 RPM), a slot-loading 8X DVDCD-RW "Combo" drive, a Firewire "400" and "800" port, built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and AirPort Extreme (802.11g), and ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 (4X AGP) graphics with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM in an attractive aluminum alloy case with a 15" widescreen TFT display (1280x854 native resolution). Custom configurations also were available.
The PowerBook G4/1.5 15" (Sudden Motion Sensor/Bluetooth 2.0+EDR) is quite similar to the PowerBook G4/1.5 15" that came before it, but is equipped with a brighter "ambient light sensor" keyboard, a faster hard drive complete with "Sudden Motion Sensor" technology that stops the hard drive heads from moving if the notebook is dropped, a new "Scrolling Trackpad" that allows one to scroll or pan by touching the trackpad with two fingers instead of one, and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.
The only difference between this model and the higher-end PowerBook G4/1.67 15" released at the same time is that this model has a slower processor and a "Combo" drive.
