PowerBook G4/1.0 (12-inch, 2003, DVI)

Smaller than the iBook, the PowerBook G4 12-inch is one of the smallest full-featured laptops Apple ever made. It was made obsolete when the MacBook was released, although the MacBook's plastic case didn't compare to the more durable aluminum used on the PowerBook. Some say the 12-nch PowerBook was replaced with the MacBook Air in 2008, but I don't think it received a true replacement unti the 13inch MacBook Pro.

I got mine for the low price of $0 in 2017, although I don't yet have a battery for it.
