The fittings and finish has been improved too, although Apple had introduced aluminum designs early in 2003 featuring its Power Book G4 and some of its successors, which used titanium in their design. Other innovative additions include the multitouch track pad. It is the technology that was first seen in the iPhones. Now it is used in the Mac Books via glass-surface touchpad.
