    So I got an urge to do a little amatuer photography today (using my fairly bad, but serviceable Canon PowerShot SD550), so my friend gave me the suggestion to photograph something that is a staple of modern design. What better than the aluminum PowerBook? Now, I want to see YOUR PowerBooks. From before G3 to G4, make them look pretty! :) First pic is a lil smudgy sorry, was messing with the settings a little bit.

    No dents, dings, or scratches, just that one mark on the Apple >.<

    I had a case of "Narcoleptic Powerbook" and at first thought I needed to repast all my dies. Spent ~3 hours doing the work to find out it was just the trackpad heat sensor that needed to be snipped!

    17" or 15"? Hard to tell from the pics.

    I don't have any picture of mine, won't till I get home around Christmas. But its a 15" Ti book that doesn't have a screen. It lives in it's own little place embedded in my workshop tool bench with a piece of plexiglass over it. One of the nicest machines I've ever used.

    If you looked at the ports you could tell it's a 12"
    only 12" have all the ports on one side plus a Mini-DVI.

    Of course. The perspective makes it look like a 15" in the pics. Good catch.
