    17" PC laptops push portability limits, unlike PowerBook
    September 5, 2003 - 14:53 EDT "After Apple introduced its innovative PowerBook G4 with a 17-inch screen earlier this year, it was only a matter of time before other PC makers got hold of wide-screen panels," writes Bill Howard in PC Magazine. "HP and Toshiba have recently introduced such models. But unlike the large though still portable 7-pound G4, these newer entries -- at around 11 pounds -- are best thought of as transportable machines to replace a desktop PC."
