The bundle brings the upgraded notebook to nearly equal status with a new 2000 PowerBook G3, but at a fraction of the cost. The MAXpowr G3-PB CPU upgrades are compatible with OS 8.x, 9.x and the OS X Public Beta.
Terry Unrein, CPU Product Manager, says, "We worked hard to maintain our existing pricing, despite the bundling of the FireWire card with the upgrades.
The MAXpowr G3-PB 458 is available for US$549 price while the MAXpowr G3-PB 466 retains its US$599 price. You can find more information about the upgrades at Neweris Web site.
