"The biggest changes are in the smallest and newest member of the PowerBook G4 family, the model with a 12-inch display. As before, it's available in two standard configurations: a $1,599 version with a Combo (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) optical drive and a $1,799 version with a SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW). While we tested only the latter, both versions now have noticeably faster G4 processors (1.33GHz, up from 1GHz) and 50 percent more hard-drive capacity (60GB versus 40GB). While the amount of built-in memory hasn't changed (it's still 256MB standard), the bus it sits on is now faster (167MHz versus 133MHz). Video RAM has grown from 32MB to 64MB. And the SuperDrive can now burn DVDs at 4x, twice as fast as before."
