The PowerBook 150

by Mark H. Anbinder

The PowerBook 150 is the orphaned cousin of Apple's laptop computer family, but with today's price drops, it becomes an affordable alternative for those who don't need fancier PowerBooks. The PowerBook 150 sports the original 100-series PowerBook case design, with a 33 MHz 68030 processor and a greyscale display, but weighs only 5.5 pounds. The new ApplePrice in the U.S. for the original 4/120 configuration is $1,069, and a new 4/250 configuration has been announced with an ApplePrice of $1,229. If you don't need much more than word processing and email, or don't need to run the latest and greatest top-heavy applications, this machine is a great bargain. [MHA]
