The Macintosh PowerBook 2400 series packed desktop-level performance into a lightweight, compact system. This notebook computer was an excellent choice for people on the move - people who wanted a system with a compact design and ultra light weight without sacrificing performance and connectivity. The PowerBook 2400 weighted only 4.4 pounds making it the lightest PowerBook computer of its time. It featured the high-performance PowerPC 603e processor and had a built-in 10.4-inch active-matrix display. The PowerBook 2400 offered a full range of built-in ports for connectivity and networking. It included a PC Card slot for additional storage, communications, or other options. The PowerBook 2400 series used a lightweight lithium-ion battery that provided 2 to 5 hours of battery life. Apple included its Location Manager software, which allowed users to switch system settings that varied by location. It also came with Apple Internet Assistant, ClarisWorks integrated productivity software, and software for remote access and cross-platform compatibility.

The PowerBook 2400 series was Apple's last classic subcompact notebook computer. It replaced the popular PowerBook Duo line of notebook computers. The 2400 series design was as innovative as it was impractical. The small keyboard made it difficult to touch type. Although only moderately popular in the United States, the 2400 was wildly popular in Japan where few people were accustomed to typing by touch. The 2400 series did not have an internal CD-ROM or floppy disk drive. Apple sold a stylish external floppy disk drive custom made for use with the 2400. Because of its short production run and odd styling, the 2400 is somewhat rare and thus highly valued by Apple collectors.
