When looking at the resurgence of Apple, the iMac, iPod, and iPhone are seen as its trio of saviors, and for good reason. Without those three products who knows what would have become of Apple, but we feel there's a product that gets overlooked. No, not Mac OS X, although, Apple couldn't have made it without that OS. We're talking about the PowerBook G4. First released in a titanium shell, the G4 PowerBook line set the industry standard for how a professional grade notebook should be designed. It was massively thinner than its predecessor, was plenty fast, and looked better than every other laptop on the market. It was groundbreaking, at least to us.
