The TFT matrix of an elder model has the size of twenty inches in diagonal and a screen resolution of 1680x1050 pixels. Other two models have diagonal size of seventeen inches and a resolution of 1440x900 pixels. Due to the available modules, AirPort Extreme 802.11g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), there is no need for cables. Some wireless peripherals, such as the keyboard Apple Wireless Keyboard and mouse Apple Wireless Mouse, can help to make the work with the computer more efficient and convenient. The microprocessor PowerPC G5 provides a high performance for the Apple computers. The capacity of the hard disk is 160 or 250 GB in dependence on the model type.
