What's your favorite feature or features of your Powerbook or iBook?
and the fact that is a grate computer for the money!
That'll be OSX!
yes, OSX is my favorite feature of my mac.
The glowing apple logo. Fasho.
Sexy aluminium case and glowing backlit keys
Although bluetooth, gigabit ethernet and firewire 800 have all come in very handy on more than 1 occasion (never underestimate the bandwidth of 'driving your laptop across town').
Tons of things about the PB are great; my favorites are:
- Screen (15" widescreen)
- Keyboard (backlit, and the tactile response)
- Overall look ... silver is sleek
If you're talking about Macs in general, I love the usability and scripting abilities of OS X, as well as the wide variety of software out there.
How fast it goes to sleep and then wakes up! Even my Mac-bashing PC-loving friends are amazed by that!
Backlit Keyboard..mad as!
Man.. Backlit Keyboard... the moment I saw it on the Video... I was hooked completely...! Can't wait til I get my 15" PB... ((I hope so..))
It's portable and I mean I can type while waiting for a train/plane , it's amazing, and my built-in bluetooth... battery life...
Love everything about mine!!!!
Looks great - nothing looks better!!!!
backlit keyboard - I thought would be a bit gimmicky - but WOW love it and it is very handy!!!!
the 17" widescreen!!!!
the keyboard - it seels great - i cant use a plastic Windoze laptop anymore!
TRUE plug and play
lots of ports
the shiny apple logo
The amazing Mac OS
Oh yeah did I mention it's because its a Mac!
Airtunes is VERY cool.
Weight and keyboard!
Ofcourse MacOSX, and style too!
I have a TiBook, but the same goes for the new Aluminum PBooks. The design, fit & finish is unmatched by any PC notebook. IBM comes close, but most laptops I see aren't nearly as nice as my Mac.
Oh, and it runs Mac OS! Duh!
yes, indeed, the original feature is sleeping and we all know how fast one can wake up. microsoft has tried to implement it too, but it has to call it "hibernating". i wonder why
i think the best feature of apple laptops is indeed the ability of running osx. other than that which is obvious, i like that my powerbook is a true desktop replacement (after i exchanged the internal hard drive to a 7200rpm one). there's just nothing missing, except i can never have too much speed as i use protools and often stress the system to its limit.
apple hardware looks just blow me away. i love the minimalist approach - no unnecessary buttons or lights, just the keyboard and one-button trackpad. they could even drop the button altogether, one can always tap it there just isn't a more beautiful computer than an apple powerbook in a dark room. lighted keyboard in front and apple logo on the backside.
did i already mention the size? any smaller and it would be ruined - make a computer too light and it begins to feel like a toy. performance must always weigh something, and i think this way because i know "something" about audio technology (where sometimes you can value the usefulness of analog gear by its weight seriously.). i think their design team has hit gold when they associated POWERsomething with aluminum...
The battery on my iBook is extremely good for such a low-cost computer.
