Ask Max: Do 15" PowerBooks have one or two top latches?

Asked on 02/19/2010:

Hi Jacob -

I am trying to find out if the Powerbook G4 15" has two latches on the top - I've heard that when they first came out there was only one latch - But in the next generation they may have had two? Can you confirm this?




The interesting thing is that all G4 PowerBooks had just a single screen latch in the 15" models. 17" PowerBooks had two latches and later the 15" MacBook Pros had two latches in both the 15" and 17" models. The 15" MacBook Pros have an iSight camera placed where the single PowerBook latch was located. That is why they switched to using a 2 screen latches on the MacBook Pros. Now they have no latches at all.
