    Re: iCurve

    I'm using a white pro keyboard and mouse right now... it comes with the iMacs (and now the Power Macs)...
  3. macrumors 604


    yep the icurve is real nice. ive used one and i like it a lot. no macs ship with black keyboard and mice anymore. its all white. you have to buy the black seperatly.

    No macs ship w/Black Keyboard & Mice :confused: ?

    My friend just got a new dual 1.25 in December and his came with the black pro mouse and keyboard. Has this changed?
  5. macrumors 65816


    According to members of the board, yes. I got a machine with black in November and a friend of mine got the same in December. This must have come along with the 1.42.

    Apple can force white keys on me, but they can't make me like it!

    i'm still a fan of the podium pad. I liek the adjstable angle and the relative closeness to the desk if you want. just my concept.
  7. macrumors 68000


    i dont see the point, why not use the laptop keyboard with a mouse. why put it on a stand?
    i dont get it.
  8. macrumors 604


    did you see my keyword "anymore". trust me i would know, emacs, imacs, powermacs come with white keybaords and mice. only left over stock of the old imac will have the black.

    Putting it on the stand helps ventilation.
  10. macrumors 604


    plus it gives you a full size keyboard, a nice mouse and puts the laptop and eye level to make it feel more like a desktop.

    what is with people using laptops as desktops? honestly. the keyword is 'lap'
  12. macrumors 6502

    Let's play the word find game. Find the word 'lap' in this word:

    - Notebook -

    They are not marketed as 'laptops' they are 'notebooks' or 'portables'.

    Also, look up 'ergonomics' - then use a notebook all day every day and you'll see why folks want to have their screen - keyboard and mouse all at a more comfortable position than normal.

    What's wrong with people using 'laptops' as desktops? Honestly. As a matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I used my "laptop' on my lap. It's usually on a table or on an airplane tray.

    And BTW, I don't keep my desktop on a desk, either. :D

    As for the iCurve, it's a great notebook stand. In addition to better cooling and a more comfortable viewing angle, you can store the keyboard under your notebook when not using it, freeing up deskspace.

    I must agree that the stand is pretty niffty but when I arrive home I work on the Desk top. But I guess some people dont have a desk top. So the Notebook/laptop thingy double as one. Guess its nice to arrive home onto the icurve. I mean you dont carry the icurve plus keyboard and mouse around do you. Its just plain nice to work at when you get home...

    it seems like you don't know the magic of 802.11b. A laptop is excellent for surfing almost anywhere in the house but when you need to crack down and work on something theres no better substitue for a desk, ext montior, ext keyboard and mouse. Its more like why do you buy a desktop when you can use a stand and have a laptop around your house tooo, hmmm.
  16. macrumors regular

    I like it =)
    I think I will get one ..
    the heat ventilation will be much better..
    plus I plan to DVI my 22" cinema to the 17"

  17. macrumors 6502

    Lots of people prefer to have the same workstation at home as they do at work. At work, which is primarily Windows-based, I bring in my notebook, and have it at home. I do not want to haul a PowerMac from my house to work every day.

    I rarely use it on my lap, except when lounging.

    Oh, and for the record, I don't like the stand idea. What I am going to do is get an external monitor. 12" doesn't cut it when you have to be far away from it (like when using an external keyboard)

    yea that thing's pretty cool. they have a 15" TiBook on one at the roosevelt field store, but as i was playing with it, it slipped off the back and almost fell off. luckily nobody saw. :cool:
  19. macrumors 6502

    thats a record, 4 quotes in the same thread :eek:
  20. macrumors member

    i saw. :eek:
  21. macrumors 6502

    I have a very similar thing going on, but much more ghetto. I plop my iBook down on an empty CDR spindel. Hello free....
