    Aluminum PowerBook Users-

    When you use your 'Book in public especially if you have the 15" or 17"
    do people sometimes say that they like your "MacBook Pro"
    and that you are so lucky to afford one?:D

    I think he is asking the powerbook users if they had their "books" mistaken for macbook pros(Non unibody)? Am i right?

    Chill, dude. He's not a poser, he thinks it's funny that people mistake aluminum PBs for MBPs.

    I don't lie about the exact model and say it is a MBP, and all my powerbooks are quite free of dings and dents.

    bingo.... you hit it right on the dot. ;)

    What is your problem? So you have a MacBook Pro, you're not King of the Universe.

    The different I/O layout and the palmrest vents are much easier to spot.

    I've had plenty of people see me with my 12" PowerBook and ask me "Is that the one that goes in the envelope?" :D

    And for the record, it's not dented, and has one scratch on the battery; I take care of my baby :)

    Yes. I am, actually. Nice guess. :)

    Well, sorry for over-reacting. It looked to me that you were basically calling Powerbooks crappy machines, but I guess you weren't.

    Here be my PowerBook (12" 1.5GHz) that's not riddled with dents; now you can say you've seen one :)

    Any my PowerBook, the slightly lower-performance 12" machine, can happily drive a 23" Cinema Display through a pure digital connection using its Mini-DVI port; the 15" and 17" PowerBooks had a full-size DVI port on 'em. Cheers!
