If it hasn’t been the iMac then it’s been the G4 Cube. For the last two years Apple has sought to bring its most innovative machines to Gitex’s exhibition halls. This year promises to be no exception with the Titanium Powerbook G4.

As with most recent products from Apple the striking design is the first thing that most show visitors will notice. As the name would suggest, the casing of this G4 Powerbook is manufactured from 99.5% pure grade titanium. With titanium being one of the densest natural elements, this commercially pure material is incredibly robust.

The key feature of the titanium element that makes it such a welcome inclusion is the super tensile strength it offers at such a low density — in other words more than any other structural material, it can support huge weights whilst maintaining a slim-line, lightweight form factor of its own.

The Titanium is to due to ship to the region with 500 MHz processor, which is capable of out performing most PC desktops in terms of multimedia functionality. The machine also boasts a 20 G/byte hard drive and 256 M/bytes of RAM.

For viewing the notebook comes with a 15.2” inch screen.
Apple’s Titanium also packs significant wireless antenna functionality and a DVD drive.
