Apple PowerBook 2400c/180The Apple Macintosh PowerBook 2400c/180 -- codenamed Comet -- features a 180 MHz PowerPC 603e processor, 16 MB of RAM, and a 1.3 GB hard drive in an attractive, compact black case with a 10.4" color active-matrix display.

At least partially because of a sleek external disk drive, this model weighs only 4.4 pounds (2 kg), which makes it even lighter than the PowerBook Duo 2300c/100, discontinued two years earlier.

The PowerBook 2400c/180 built-in display supports 16-bit color and the computer also can mirror up-to 16-bit color on an external display.
