Think he has the latest PB (I'm sure he has many)?

Assuming he's not using one of the first Mactel Powerbooks, I'd guess he probably has the best G5 (Dual-Dual) at his desk, with either a 12 or 15 inch powerbook for being on the road. The 17" just isn't ideal for someone who travels.

I remember reading in the company memo when he was in the hospital for pancreatic cancer treatment, he said he was typing it from a 17" PowerBook using AirPort express. memo ("http://www.thinksecret.com/news/jobsmemo.html)

Maybe I'm wrong then...

Come to think of it he probably has one of each, synchronized with eachother, so that he can choose whatever size fits his schedule. :D

I actually forgot all about Steve's surgery until you posted that link. I remember reading about it a while ago, but I wasn't a Mac user back then so it wasn't really a huge deal to me (please don't take that the wrong way). Thank God he is alright, though. It's not everyday you're diagnosed with a rare disease like that one... but all is good now. :)

Say that loudly in a public place and see what kind of response you get ;)

It's a Dell Inspiron 5000 running Windows ME. 64MB shared RAM and a 15 GB HDD. Celeron 633MHz. 14" 1024x768. USB 1.1, VGA out, mono speaker.

Michael Dell sent him one this year and said it was the latest and greatest from their company. This is the reason Steve hasn't throttled the folks at Freescale - he thinks his other laptop (brand new 17" PowerBook) absolutely destroys Dell's best.

Yeah cancer affects many millions of people around the world every day. Perhaps Steve or Apple should start supporting cancer research like Lance Armstrong does. (Lance is sponsored by AMD).

A quick search for 'Apple' and 'Cancer' produces results suggesting that apples reduce the risk of colon cancer. Hmm I wonder how that works. I'm glad I bought a 12" iBook...

I reakon he'd have a 12 inch PowerBook.

Why doesn't someone email Apple and ask?

Will the thread be over if, instead of yelling, you sing?

No, wait, I'm not sure the word was "fast"... something close... can't remember...


I'd guess Stevo uses a 15" PB. Sweet spot of size/performance.

As far as the 17" memo... (a) maybe just because he couldn't use a desktop, he used a big PB; (b) maybe heat therapy was required after his surgery; (c) maybe we're all assuming he actually was using it instead of simply saying he was....

If he retires, he'll be able to take you to prom. I'd've thought that would make you happy, not sad. ;)

Ah, heat therapy.
that's what powerbooks are good for.

and who you calling fat?
you are as big as the moon!

and I thought I was taking you to prom! *sobs*

Oh, no, I wasn't calling you fat! Just mixing up my sayings. ;) I'd prefer that you remain a fast lady. :)

And I guess I just assumed that Greenie would bump me off the list. Which is really sad, as I'd found that $5 tux and I'd already bought the 4GB white nano....

Actually, with an anticipated battery life of 12 seconds, the G5PB would be quite cold at prom, sadly enough....

I assumed that's how you referred to Alan in private.

Oh dear God, get the image out of my head! :eek:

And yeah right, you'll take the nano. Have Algae (my nickname for him, now that he'll be taking you) buy you one... or the company.

I am sure that it could at least squeeze in
about 15 minutes of operating time. ;)

A better question would be what kind of notebook does Steve Wozniak use... Anyone think he's still plugging away on ppc hardware or is using a freeOS on an x86 platform?
