So, I am writing this from my beautiful new 17" PB... wow is this thing amazing!!! I thought I was impressed with my PowerMac - sheesh! And the thing I really like is that it isn't too big. It's large, larger than most other laptops, but the thinness of it and the weight make it very portable. I couldn't think of a better laptop to go to school with in the fall! - reaper PS The only annoying thing I have found so far are the pretty annoying doubletypes I am experiencing (I think I just have to get used to the keyboard) and the lack of dedicated "home" and "delete" keys on the keyboard. Oh well, a small price to pay for a great laptop.
