powerbook 3400c

The powerbook 3400c was the swiftest laptop in the world. Using the powerpc 603e processor running at speeds of up to 240 MHz, this powerbook was the first to feature a pci architecture, edo memory and a 64-bit wide, 40 MHz internal bus. It was also the first powerbook to feature a pc-card slot capable of being used as a zoomed video port.

 

Like all apple laptops since the powerbook 500 series, it featured a built-in trackpad as the pointing device. This last powerbook with powerpc architecture shipped with a 180, 200 and 240 MHz ppc processor and a 12.1" tft svga lcd.
