If you’ve ordered a
Titanium PowerBook, you should be getting it real soon, according to Steve Jobs. Apple’s CEO told the crowd at his Macworld Tokyo keynote that the new portable was now shipping in volume.
Of the new Titanium PowerBook G4, he said titanium was stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. Jobs added that titanium was “absolutely the material of the future for laptop computers.”
The CEO apologized to those who have ordered one and still haven’t received it. However, they’re now shipping in volume, he said.
“We’re working seven days a week to make them, so you should have one soon,” Jobs said. “We’re shipping them as fast as we can.”
Touting the new portable as the world’s fastest portable studio, he added that the new PB G4 runs Final Cut Pro, Apple’s high-end video editing application, 60 percent faster than its G4 predecessor.
Jobs also showed a video about the new portable’s design and production. The video featured testimonies from Apple personnel and creative content producers about the titanium laptop.
“People are staggered when they see how small it is and how much it can accomplish,” Jonathan Ives, head of Apple’s design team, said in the video.
