    Mine was stolen last week, so I bought another. But then yesterday it happened again, and I had to get another one. Today I can't find my laptop. I'll probably just make another trip to the Apple store and buy a few backups just incase. The worst part is, they were 27" iMacs. I lost the carrying cases too!

    Nope. Back in my days, we didn't have laptops. We had pencil and paper and that's the way it was and we liked it!:p

    Nope.

    But I did have my windows laptop stolen at an airport while I was in college. Had it sitting next to me on the floor, got up to walk to my gate and it was gone. Somebody somehow got it while I was looking the other way or something.

    Thankfully no but that's because I was too poor to afford one back in the day. In college I was rocking a hand-me-down Dell tower PC. I think it was a Pentium II with a whopping 40GB HD and 512MB of RAM. Then I upgraded to a POS Toshiba Satellite laptop that held it's charge for all of 10 minutes before I had to bolt to the nearest wall outlet. Oh how the times have changed.

    As far as destroyed? The above mentioned Toshiba Satellite laptop. Thanks to countless viruses I had to restore the HD so many times, I actually memorized the WinXP License key. Eventually the motherboard fried so I dropped the laptop out of a three story apartment building. I did go back and pick up the hard drive, just in case, but yeah, it was completely FUBAR'd.

    Went to college in the early 90s. No laptop for me. I did have a computer running 20Mhz, 2MB of RAM, 40MB harddrive, and a 24-pin dot matrix printer.
