The Greatest Vintage Apple PowerBook and MacBook Collection

© 2004 - 2019

last update: 01.01.2019


The macbookpro was introduced 2006 amd replaced the powerbook G4 with an intel proecessor and with 13- and 15-inch screens. A 17-inch version was available in the first and second generation, but not in the third.


The first generation macbookpro appeared externally similar to the powerbook G4, but used the intel core processors instead of powerpc G4 chips. 


The macbookpro second generation, known as the "unibody" model, has a more tapered design and a casing made from a single block of aluminum.


The most substantial differences in the third generation macbookpro are the fitting of a significantly higher resolution retina display, the elimination of the optical drive, and replacement of hard disk drives with solid-state drives.
