This application lists all the Laptops that Apple have made starting from iBook in July 1999 - and going up to the PowerBook G4, 17" (2005). Why? Well I'm not sure you need this app, but I have to confess to looking & lusting over the laptops!

When you launch this app it launches straight in, opening an apple laptop products page. You can search for something specific that you are looking for or just scroll down through the entire list. I scrolled, it isn't a massive list and I wanted to see the laptops. When you find the laptop you were looking for you click it.

The information you get is:

Image of the product you selected
Price in $
Year of introduction
Supported or not
Hard Drive

Yes, that's the entire application. But I like it. I want more. I want to have on my iPhone an app that lists every sexy Apple that's out there or that was at some point in circulation. I wish this app had more, I'm not sure why it only has the laptops listed. Could be that they have released this with a look to release more updates of information in the future.

I appreciate that it may only be me who likes this application as well, but if you are interested in being able to know what the products were and happen to have a really bad memory for these things then this might be an app that you like too.

It uses the same conventions of interface as the other apps and is so easy to navigate that it is quick to show you the information you were looking for.

Overall you will re-use it if you find yourself needing this information. If it isn't something you need - well then there's no point. I think, for reference, that I want more from it, but it's a good beginning, and hey - one of my favorite topics too!
