Investing in Classic Apple
Apple has always worked to bring innovation and awesome design to the tech world. Back in the 1990s and early 2000s, that meant the PowerBook. An award-winning laptop, the PowerBook was targeted at the professional market. How good was it? Not only was the PowerBook awarded the Industrial Design Excellence Awards ‘Gold’ status in 2001, it also took home Engadget's ‘Laptop of the Year’ in 2005.
Throughout its lifetime, the PowerBook saw plenty of upgrades and updates, revisions and redesigns – just as Apple’s current line of laptops do now. When releasing a redesigned model or upgraded tech, Apple’s PowerBook was often the first laptop on the market to do so. It led, where other laptops followed. So, what became of Apple’s glorious PowerBook? In 2006, the time came to retire the PowerBook range, making way for Apple’s latest in laptop design. Yep, the PowerBook was replaced by the MacBook Pro.
Buying the PowerBook
While some buyers only invest in the latest tech, there are some who prefer to stick to the classics. While Apple may have discontinued its PowerBook line, that doesn’t mean it’s not still available to buy. With a vast range of the latest tech – and many classics as well – eBay is the place to find and compare all tech options. Check out eBay’s range of Apple laptops to find the classic PowerBook, and compare it to Apple’s latest MacBook Pro options to see what else is on offer.
Buying laptops on eBay is super easy. Not only can buyers compare the various laptops and netbooks out there – yes, even laptops and desktops from non-Apple manufacturers – eBay also makes it simple to compare all the options within a certain line, refining each search by operating system, processor type, processor speed and memory. Whether it’s a PowerBook or a MacBook Pro, buyers can find the best possible option at the best possible price.
