    and why would you want a 23" laptop....it would be too big to be manageable..

    What prompted you to make the thing up?

    I have no excuse. Taking up bandwidth? Tired of the ridiculous rumours? Who knows. It was 3am when I made it. I saw a post about G5 laptops and got igitty.

    Of course I'd remove the thread if I were you!

    I wouldn't mind a 23" laptop - with a built in Wacom tablet and full size keyboard it would be killer. Better yet would be an expandable screen - say you have a 15" PB and you have the ability to slide 2 5" LCDs out of the sides of the display to bring your total screen size to 25" - sweet. Ah one can dream. I could always use more real estate - ever have every palette open in Painter or Photoshop - gets a bit cramped even on a 17" PB.

    I'd like to go in the other direction - an 8" or even 6" PowerBook. No optical, G3 processor, 8 hour+ battery life. :D

    That'd be one hella small keyboard. My fat fingers don't fair well on small keyboards.

    There's a bigger keyboard. Did I mention I was a beta-tester for Apple's new 64" Powerbook?

    is that the one with the footpad so you can finally get the full experience from your emulator running Nintendo Track & Field?

    If I remember correctly, some years back IBM had a sub laptop that had a full sized "butterfly" keyboard that, when opening the display, allowed the keyboard to "flap" open from two halves and form a full arrangement including number pad keys. This allowed a small (I think 9 or 10 inch screen?) screen and footprint, but gave you the full sized keyboard.

    Not very portable but why not just wire (better-wireless) a keyboard into the 64" HD plasma screen on the wall and build the HD into the wall between the studs!! :cool:

    No wait!! Voice recognition!! even better – no keyboard.

    Does the 23" PB come with quad G5 processors? If not, then it'll never fly with the Mac rumours crowd. ;)

    I hear it's great for people who are half blind and have no arms.

    THIS just in... Jobs at MacWorld Ulan Bator introducing the iJ-Tron. Takes a family of three to force quit Microsoft Office.

    Okay, I'm done with my excursion into stupidity.
    Back to the real world.

    Nah, a G7. Under wraps until recently outed at MacSurfer, the G7 uses cold fusion (see other post), so it runs virtually forever on a half a glass of tap water. It weighs 150 lbs. and cost 1.5M US. Shipping is free.
