    This is something I pulled from another forum I visit. I have actually never seen a statement quite like this before.

    "Personally, I think Powerbooks look like they were made stricty for women. Very "designer" like if you know what I mean. I don't think I'd like carrying a WHITE laptop around."

    Only women are designers? Who knew.
    Who knew the powerbooks were white, either?

    I thought I was going to read something on how the heat from Powerbooks can hurt a guys "downstairs", thus they're made for women as women don't have that worry (at least I don't think they don't).

    Hopefully this isn't a well regarded statement by the rest of the community at the "other" site you visit.

    Otherwise I'd have a rather poor opinion of people at the other site.

    Could be a rather talented man trying to make a sleek, sexy plastic case.

    It's not like everything has to look like it was designed by a bunch of engineers for other engineers with absolutely no fashion sense.

    Yes, actually, all the male iBook and Powerbook users here are actually women impersonating men. :D

    My Powerbook indulges my feminine side. We talk about boys, watch Hugh Grant movies, fantasize over having J-Lo's ass, and brood over pictures of cute little babies.

    Well, that sounds uninformed and otherwise myopic, but that's the norm these days. If you're going to read the media, you better have a strong filter, because most of it is pure drivel. If you can't get a real job, you can write articles like this one (and they get paid, I guess).

    I liked how my iBook indulged my feminine side too. Ever since I got it I couldn't stop thinking about cute bois, or watching Angelina Jolie films, fantasise over having J-Lo's ass for breakfast lunch and dinner and brood over pics of cute litte drag kings.

    whew! And I thought I was the only person who hated to look good. I guess I'll now have a buddy to surf the web with when I lug my Helmet PC down to the local starbucks along with my 19" CRT screen to surf the web :rolleyes:. Don't want any white powerbooks to make guys think I'm a woman. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Yup!

    My 62 year old neighbor just bought a PowerBook so he could try out online dating.
    You might say his PowerBook is made for women, cause now he's meeting plenty of them.

    Utter BS.

    I'm a guy, and heterosexual if you are curious, and not only do I presently have an iBook...but I'm planning on getting a PowerBook, probably this year.

    Yep. In fact, I have a friend (heterosexual as well) who had a hard time getting the 12" powerbook over the 12" ibook initially BECAUSE of the white color of the ibook. I'll agree, though, that there's just something about that solid white color that is really nice...

    The thread that the original post referred to is sort of humorous, actually, if any of you wanted to view it..

    I'm sure that the guy in the other forum was referring to the iBook, not the Powerbook. He probably isn't a Mac user and got is products mixed up. So what he meant was, "iBooks look like they're made for women." ;)

    I'm also sure that he is an idiot.

    My money is on this is a troll who was trying to get your ire up.

    If not, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But if it were me, I'd ignore it. It's just silly.

    i don't like the racist overtone ... why can't a laptop be white?

    should they only be black?

    since we USE laptops, we should be USING black laptops

    it's like this person we should be USING blacks

    very racist indeed


    PS. -- I figure i would continue and make another ludicrous statement *shrugs* :cool:

    Mac laptops are simply gorgeous. *gush*
    They match my earrings...

    I don't think I can handle the raw brute power of my G5.
