A PowerBook for Tiny Fingers -- Apple and IBM officially introduced the PowerBook 2400c last week, filling the sub-notebook category left vacant by the discontinued Duo line. The machine runs on a 180 MHz 603e PowerPC processor with a 256K Level 2 cache, and supports a 10.4-inch active-matrix color display. Weighing only 4.4 pounds and smaller than notebook-sized paper, the 2400c should be a relief for travelers burdened by shoulder-straining loads of equipment. Some concessions Apple made in the 2400's size are a smaller keyboard (originally designed for the Japanese market, where hunt-and-peck typing in Kanji is more common than touch typing in English) and a lack of an internal floppy drive. Prices should start around $3,500; units will start shipping in Japan at the end of the month, and are expected be available in the United States at the end of July. [JLC]
