I think it's fantastic that they've finally decided to add a grill to the PB. Having a portable computer is nice, but it's even better when you can grill a tasty burger as you browse MR on the beach.

I'd have cried like a baby if that happened to my PB. How hot do you figure that thing got to crisp up like that?

BTW, is there a high rez version of that to be had?

A would wager money that that was once a Powerbook G4.

Exploding batteries are pretty cool, as long as it doesn't happen to me.

Actually, I think it is a 15". Looks like it has the same number of rows of "holes" as my PB. The battery on the 15" is under the left front corner.

There was definitely a thread on this a while back. Can't remember what the conclusion was, but speculation was about the same as in this thread.

That picture looks about accurate.



Maybe Digitimes will convince me otherwise
