Techopedia Explains TiBook

The TiBook was one inch thick, weighed 2.5 kilograms and contained a front-mounted optical drive for DVDs or CDs. Its design aimed to be elegant and minimalist.

The TiBook had a closed lid mode (or clamshell) in which the display could be off and the entire video RAM dedicated to an external display. This mode required an AC adaptor, a connection to an external display and USB connections for a mouse and keyboard.

The TiBook was discontinued in September of 2003 and replaced with a new line of laptop computers – the Aluminum PowerBook G4, nicknamed the AlBook.
