    Will the iCurve support the 17" Powerbook? And is it worth the money?

    Thanks!

    It should be able to support the 17'' powerbook but be aware some of the people on this board feel the iCurve, is not all its cracked up to be; do a search on iCurve on the site :)

    The iCurve seems a bit limited. I own a podmium coolpad and compared to the iCurve I see these differences

    Pros for cooplad:
    Rests on desk, so theres no where it can really fall
    Can use laptop keyboard and trackapd with it if you want.
    adjustable
    Rotates
    easier to move, detach little lego-esque pieces and drop in your bag
    I use it to organize the cables that stay on my desk so they don't go all over the place

    Pros for iCurve
    Looks Awesome
    Can make the laptop higher than coopad

    Basically the iCurve cannot do most of the things mentioned in the pros for coolpad which is something to think about.

    I tried out the icurve with my 17, seems to be fine. Personally, I think it looks damn cool, and is perfect for external keyboard/mice setups (you dont get that back of the keyboard butting the laptop because the icurve design allows the keyboard to sit slightly under the machine)
