Newer Releases PowerBook UpgradesNUpowr G4 swaps with G3 for $350
According to Newer, the upgrade requires users to send in their current PowerBook so that Newer can perform the upgrade installation. Newer removes the old processor, places the new one in and then tests the system. Newer says it will send e-mail progress reports to customers who request them and that the entire process using UPS two-day shipment requires two weeks.
For the 233 MHz Wallstreet PowerBook, which did not ship with a level-2 cache, Newer will install a 1 MB cache running at 250 MHz for an additional cost.
Newer says the upgraded PowerBooks can run the original OS that shipped with the model all the way through Mac OS X. The NUpowr G4 includes a two-year warranty and costs $350. For more information, visit http://www.newertech.com.
