Apple PowerBook 3400c/200The Apple Macintosh PowerBook 3400c/200 -- codenamed Hooper -- features a 200 MHz PowerPC 603e processor, 16 MB of RAM, a 2.0 GB hard drive, and either a 6X or 12X CD-ROM drive packed in a portable black case with a 12.1" color active matrix display.

The PowerBook 3400c/200 display supports 16-bit color and the computer also can mirror up-to 16-bit color on an external monitor.

In addition to support for the "hot swappable" drive bays introduced by the PowerBook 5300 series before it, the PowerBook 3400 models introduced support for zoomed video and 1 MB IrDA as well as a new four speaker sound system.

More notable than individual features, however, the PowerBook 3400 series made its mark by being the first series of PowerBooks fast enough to actually replace, rather than merely complement, a desktop system for most users.
