The PowerPort/Gold

Send Article to a Friend

The PowerPort/Gold for 100-series PowerBook models dropped in price last week, according to Global Village Communication. Apple won't offer any modem-bundled PowerBook 150s, so Global Village hopes to capture the lion's share of modem sales for the new PowerBooks. The suggested retail price dropped from $349 to $299; ten-packs of the 14,400 bps data/fax modem (for real modem fiends) dropped from $3,199 to $2,479. [MHA]
