    20"?? A REAL mac user would have a 23" minimum!! hehe.

    I'm green with envy though. Those Powerbooks are so damn sexy. It's the first time Ive ever read an electronics catalogue and admired the pages as though I were reading hustler.

    Girlfriend thinks Ive gone crazy.

    i hope to see the next rev of powerbooks has a different look or maybe some color. i am kinda tired of the brushed metal appearance to be honest. i think they should just try something new and if that fails then go back to what worked

    i love the white though, how could you not :p

    It looks the same as every other 12" PB! If you really want a picture, google 12" Powerbook, and click images.

    I remember getting my first Mac. Is this your first ever?

    I hadn't used one in so long it was completely foreign to me.

    But after a little while, I realized that I was onto something good. Especially when I was able to move from OS9 to OSX.

    I too hated macs before I switched.

    However, in thinking about it, I was just reasonably jealous of the fact that it was new and exciting. The people on the platform defend it so strongly that it's really annoying for an XP user.

    And then I switched, loved the OS instantly, and now I too defend the OS to it's hilt!! Its just funny that everybody wants what they cant have - and indeed, if not, the best thing is to lay on a few slurs about it! Human nature I suppose.

    lol i hated them because my school used G3's 333mhz 98mb ram 16mb Video ram, and 10 gb hd for 3d rendering... A G3 sure can't do that! So that is why i started to hate them until i was like "Wait wtf do i hate them for, those were pos computers plus were not made for 3d rendering" So i tried the OS and loved it so now i love macs...
