Just wondering (that other thread down below reminded me that I've been wondering this over the past week). Anyone know? Oh and - let's discount Steve Jobs please. That's a no-brainer!

Darn...so far no one who I'm crazy about. How about Meryl Streep or someone big (and oh so talented) like that! This is fun...keep 'em coming!

If Drew Barrymore may be a user, why not Tom Cruise? Although when he clicks on the blue apple, it says OS S ... operating system powered by Scientology.

Not that I watch Newlyweds but...

Jessica Simpson's husband Nick someone... has a 12" Powerbook.

The majority of Hollywood uses a Powerbook so I wouldn't be surprised if there are more that crawl out of the woodwork!

You sure this isn't George Bush's laptop?
BA HA HA HA HA! Good one! I thought for sure the Bush's would use PC laptops - I'm kind of disgusted to learn they put their dirty paws on pretty little Powerbooks!

It could be but once I saw it I thought it was more likely that it was specifically designed to meet the intellectual needs of Dan Quayle.

I know these people have Apple laptops, not sure if they are Powerbooks though:

Mark Hoppus-Blink 182's bassist
Moby
Wil Wheaton
Tom Rowlands-Chemical Brothers

Check this article out, although it isn't necessarily about celebrities who use PB's, it does list a lot of them who shop for Apple products.

I know alot of guys in the music world use them. Robbie Williams has a room in his house in LA full or them. It's home recording studio with about 3 power macs in there and he was using a powerbook him self, it was on a show about his new album.
