The powerbook 145 is quite similar to the powerbook 140 it replaced, but the 145 has a faster processor motorola 68030 with 25 MHz and shipped with more RAM and instead of a scsi- a larger ide-hard drives by default. The powerbook 145B was exactly the same machine except with a lower price (and 2 MB more RAM soldered to the logic board). The 145B was discontinued in July 1994.
