iBook G3: the Last update.

Experiment with the abandonment of transparency was considered a success. The pursuit of beauty in users of Macs, as it turned out, was somewhat exaggerated. Other features Macs (ease of use, etc.) was more important. Could just ask. This time to gather journalists and experts did not. Moreover, about the update not even issued a press release. Just, one day, in the 133-th anniversary of Lenin, in the Apple online store options iBook (Late 2002) was replaced by the iBook (Early 2003).

It happened in the night from 21 to 22 April 2003 time-Western coast of the United States. That we were made on April 22 to come to school in white shirts, and many of you of that pleasure was denied, and date of birth of Lenin don’t know.

Those who did not have habit to look in the morning in the online store, and never knew about it.

The reasons for this attitude… more or less understandable. The main news (all options are white, opaque, frustratingly conventional in appearance) of special importance are not represented. Moreover, it turns out all three generation iBook G3 “aerospace” PowerPC 750fx was designed wholesale by the beginning of 2002, and the only question that remained open at the beginning of 2003 – type of plastic – is not required neither Abraham nor creative efforts.

The group “household portable computers” have long worked on a more interesting project, it was close to completion and entered into the hectic stage. Test, testing, debugging.

In addition, on April 28 of the same year was appointed the announcement of the new iPod models, 3-th, where Apple first thought of the inhabitants of the “dark side” (Windows), where Firewire never really caught on. But more about that some other time. Everyone was very busy.

This is the ninth part of a series about the iBook, and the latest about the iBook G3. A list of previous parts is given below:

First: Laptop candy style: iBook
Second: iBook: “something else”
Third: the World of Steve jobs iBook
Fourth: iBook G3 (Mid 2001): give a steer to designers?
Fifth: iBook G3 (Late 2001): Include in the kit a screwdriver…
Sixth: iBook’and move to Mac OS X
Seventh: iBook G3: “icicle” in the Sands of the Sahara
Eighth: iBook G3, all in white…

iBook G3 (Early 2003)

Total code name of the latest model iBook G3 – Pipeline (Pipeline). 12-inch variants of the code name was Р72С, 14-inch P73C.

The first of April 2003, the network appeared the image of a bowl with Apple’s logo, it was like a new project that the company worked in their usual way. And she had a code name: Pipeline (P72WC and P73WC), depending on size.

Such a coincidence could not be accidental, and until the completion of the project has within it code names secret. Someone joked over the security service of Apple, the fate of the Joker (and his name) remained unknown. Could it be…?

All three versions were equipped with video card ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (2xAGP) with the same amount of video memory is 32 Megabytes.

They were supplied with two pre-installed operating systems, Mac OS 9.2.2 and Mac OS 10.2.4.

The rest of the options last model of the iBook G3 were not different from the last.

The same communication ports, the slot for the installation of the AirPort (which can be purchased in the designer configurations in the online store for $ 99), in the case of the same two antennas for the AirPort.

iBook G3 (Early 2003) — options

In a budget option, according to tradition, was 24x speed CD-ROM. The drive is 30 Gigabytes, 128 Megabytes of RAM on the motherboard, the processor with a clock frequency of 800 MHz. And even in tests Geekbench 2 it scored the same as “expensive” options Late 2002 – 379 points.

It cost $ 999.

12-inch version with a clock frequency of the processor 900 MHz (PowerPC 750fx) equipped with a 8x Combo drive hard disk 40 GB, gained 442 points in the Geekbench 2 tests, and 1 was worth $ 299.

8x Combo drive may require decoding. It is 8X/24X/10X/24X DVD-ROM/CD-RW.

The 14-inch version was different from the 12-inch variant with a clock frequency of 900 MHz, but the size of the included memory, it was 256. It was offered 1 for $ 499 (compared to Late 2002, at 100 MHz increased clock speed of its processor, and 100 $ did the price drop).

The Mojave in 2003

In 2002, IBM released the PowerPC 750gx (Gobi), with a maximum clock frequency of 1.1 GHz. The processor was great, superior to “aerospace” PowerPC 750fx all the important and unimportant parameters… for Example, if a clock frequency of 900 MHz under a “normal load,” he ate and disseminated in the form of heat 9 Watts. PowerPC 750fx, in the same conditions – only 6 Watts.

Apple representatives with interest and watched a presentation, took a sample and thinking… a couple of weeks, reported that “not taking”.

IBM has not calmed down: in 2003, she introduced the PowerPC 750vx (Mojave), with clock frequencies from 1.5 to 1.8 GHz, supports clock frequency of the front bus up to 400 MHz, and even with AltiVec (vector calculations), the same AltiVec for the G5.

IBM could start production of the PowerPC 750vx in December 2003, and in 2004 – PowerPC 750vxe to increase the clock frequency to 2.0 GHz.

Apple said the transition to G4. The release of the PowerPC 750vx was cancelled, it never was released.

  1. Thanks for expressing your ideas I’d personally also like to say that video games have been ever evolving Modern tools and improvements have assisted create reasonable and fun games These entertainment games were not as sensible when the real concept was being experimented with Just like other areas of know-how, video games also have had to evolve by means of many decades This is testimony to the fast development of video games

  2. Some tips i have observed in terms of computer memory is always that there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must fit the specs of the motherboard If the pc’s motherboard is kind of current while there are no main system issues, upgrading the ram literally usually takes under an hour It’s on the list of easiest computer upgrade methods one can think about Thanks for spreading your ideas

  3. Things i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is the fact that there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must fit the specs of the motherboard If the computer’s motherboard is reasonably current while there are no main system issues, changing the storage space literally will take under sixty minutes It’s among the list of easiest laptop upgrade treatments one can think about Thanks for spreading your ideas

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
