Discontinuation

At the Macworld Conference & Expo at San Francisco in 2006, Apple CEO Steve Jobs revealed the MacBook Pro, based around an Intel processor. The first MacBook Pro came in a 15.4-inch model with an aluminum enclosure similar to the preceding PowerBook G4. The 12, 15, and 17-inch aluminum PowerBook G4 models remained on sale in Apple Stores, until inventory ran out. The 17-inch PowerBook G4 was soon replaced by the 17-inch MacBook Pro, and the 12-inch PowerBook G4 remained available until May 16, 2006, when the first 13-inch MacBook was announced as the replacement for the iBook. The 15-year Powerbook line of portable Macintosh computers finally came to an end.
