    Does anyone know if there is anything else available on the market, that is similar to the Googie Drive for the Powerbook G4?

    I agree - Googie? I'm a touch confused. Can you eat it?

    Its a bit like a unit, to perch your Powerbook onto. You can store an attached pro keyboard underneath it, therefore turning the Powerbook into a LCD monitor. ;)

    iCurve rocks!

    I got one for my girlfriend recently, she loves and it goes perfectly with the ibook I gave her (hehe, now I get my desktop all to myself).

    Seriously, we tried another stand that was more like an Elvis plate holder. Then I stepped up and got the iCurve. It's solid, strong, looks awesome, and leave a lot of extra room below the book for storage of say plam pilot, mouse, wires, pencils, dust.

    1 drawback is that the ibook is not actually clamped in, so when you open the lid, you need to hold down the book with the other hand..not really a big deal.

    Other drawback is that it is NOT height adjustable...but they made it the right height, so it works out great.

    We got one of those $100 metal stands from Japan (macimports.com I think) and it's really sweet, but not much better than the $30 iCurve.
