My fiance' had a really interesting story about her powerbook that I wanted to share and see what others thought of it; the words in quotes are the words she chose to describe the story: She works at a Holiday Inn Express as a front desk representative. While working one day, she had her powerbook out doing various things on it. A kind of "uppity" business man was sitting in the lobby and came up to her and pulled out a "fat" Toshiba laptop and said to her: "Now this is a laptop." She looked up at him, and just said, "...ok..." It sounded to me like the guy felt threatened by her powerbook. I was just thinking about it, and the funny thing is, I can't see too many mac users actually doing a thing like this. It seems to me that most of us mac users are kind of silent about our beloved machines, because we just know we have a better computer. However, you always hear about PC users "bashing" macs and trying to pick fights with mac users. What does that say about the two different worlds? Just some thoughts. What do you think? BTW, I told her I would've responded to the guy and said, "Yeah, well this is American made."
