    gimme a break

    A 1ghz TI? I dnt think so.
    first off, how many comp;uters do you think he has, probably like 8 in his house, 2 in the office, 1 in the car.
    secondly, he has more money than god, plus, he gets free computers, he upgrades each item at each revision. they dont come out so often theat i bet he gets a new one at each revision, both powermac and macPortable line.
    although i bet he has at least one of each computer he has ever made.

    No, I would bet you money that Steve doesn't upgrade at every revision. What is the point? He's probably not even a power user, if you think about it.

    He has been using a TiBook since the Alubooks came out, yes, I'm sure he has used an Alubook, but maybe he LIKES the TiBook and wants to continue using it.

    I'd be betting that he has that, maybe a 12" Powerbook for traveling, and a G5 with Cinema display.

    I remember when he was in the hospital a year ago (?), there was a report that he was e mailing apple employees from his bed on a 17" powerbook.

    This thread has been done before, btw. :)

    I think it's safe to say he is probably normal like the rest of us when it comes to his setups. Notice I said setups. But the only thing not normal is the number of them he has.

    Well I know his family uses an iMac (didn't he mention this at a keynote?), and he probably still uses his PowerBook G4 17-inch, as mentioned above. Also I'm sure he has a Windows box lying around, obviously for teasing purposes. :D

    Normal? He probably has something that's five years from release to the little people!

    Quad Core Intel 3.5ghz 15" AppleBook Professional.

    Or something unimaginable like that.

    A TiBook, are you kidding? Why would he suffer with one of those?

    That's probably why Apple never fixes cosmetic problems, i.e paint chipping. Steve upgrades too fast to notice. :D

    I highly doubt he upgrades on a consistent basis. I'm sure has his hobbies, but running a business that massive alone is going to take up countless hours of his 'free-time'. I'd say a good powermac and his 17" PB (which he used to write that e-mail about him being sick), and his 15" MBP.

    I would bet he doesn't own a whole ton computers. Hasn't he always been more interested in making money from computers than computers themselves (vs the Woz). Though he does seem to have an ego, so I would highly doubt he's using outdated stuff.
