    Hmm... maybe he can't stand displays with grain or banding? :rolleyes:

    Or maybe he just want to leave more of his billions for his kids :p

    He adapted XGrid so he doesn't just use *a* Mac; he uses all of them! :D He's using yours right now! :D Why do you think he has that squirly grin? ;)

    If I remember correctly, when Steve was sick and at hospital he had a Powerbook 17" at his bedside.

    Even better he sells out the computer farm to google!

    That's why google returns results so quickly, you are using your own computer's juice to process your search results!

    Of course he uses a Mac – It might be an Intel Mac running Windows but it's still a Mac, right? ;)

    I'm assuming that photo was taken at a conference or whatever so that machine was set up for him. I'm sure he uses a mac at home and work.

    That was taken in October 2003 - he was demoing iTunes for Windows at its release event.

    To think about it...

    Do you really think Bill Gates, richest man in the world, actually uses that poor excuse for an operating system Windows?

    lol.

    I wish I could see what he has in his office/house to test out. I bet he has all kinds of mac stuff years away.

    Put about $2000 worth of Flash memory in there and do away with the hard disk. :)

    $2000 worth of flash memory is not a lot of storage... :cool:

    At Apple's purchase prices, it's probably on the order of the size of a notebook hard disk (80-100GB). Make it $20,000 if you want, but there are space considerations as well....

    I truly believe he is disgusted with Windows (and PCs running it). If you are CEO, you can pretty much control the computing environment at the company and make its network Mac compatible. The only reason I have Windows units are my work place uses Windows and my employer's IT only knows about Windows. If I am going to be employed by Apple, I am sure I don't need to own Windows PC (maybe using occasionally to check on what's up with MS).

    Actually in his earlier days of his second coming at Apple, he used an IBM notebook...
