OK

I am a complete powerbook ignoramus...what do the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria look like,... I mean the "Lombard" the "Pismo" and the "Wall St".

If you have pics to help the mind's eye of your PB's with a caption so much the better, so one can decipher all these Apple code names for the various laptops.

They are all PowerBook's. After Apple releases them they never refer to them to their pre-release code name but message boards like these arte filled with references to them!

Chronologically they are:

(code name) = (Apple name)

Kanga = G3

Wallstreet = G3 Series

Lombard = G3 Series (Bronze Keyboard)

Pismo = G3 (Firewire)

Mercury = G4

Onyx = G4 (Gigabit Ethernet)

these two haven't been incorporated yet

i certainly don't refer to them as "mercury" or "onyx"

i would still prefer something like "the titanium" (full spelling), because it was the first gen g4 powerbook and the original of that series. sort of like "the rock"...i believe that it's popularity can vouch for such a name

the 550 can be called the tibook or we should wait until the next gen come out
