The G4’s cool, buffed shell, recessed ports, and ergonomic edges house Apple’s most powerful mobile command center to date. We love iLife—an included suite of powerful programs that edit and organize photos, movies, music, and more. With 64 megs of dedicated graphics memory, a hard drive that buckles its own seat belt when it feels itself falling (the read/write heads retract before impact), a trackpad that’s sensitive enough to be used with frostbitten fingers, and movie-burning capabilities, you’ll be able to produce your first—or fifth—Banff competition entry right from base camp.
