    These are and remain very capable machines. If I were forced to give up all my PowerPC computers, my 15" DLSD Powerbook would probably be the one I would fight hardest to keep.

    Looks like you've overall taken very good care of yours.

    BTW, I just put a solid state drive in mine a few weeks ago, and it perked up the machine surprisingly well.

    I've been considering solid state myself but Im dumping another 300$ into my gaming computer so the solid state will have to wait

    The physical design of these PowerBooks is gorgeous. Every little screw, vent, and port is just right. The current machines became almost too plain and simple by comparison.

    Agreed. I love my MacBook but the design of the old PowerBooks were amazing, especially for their time. I prefer the old Al PowerBook keyboards as well.

    Actually, I'd say the dock looks more like Mountain Lion/Mavericks than Lion. The wallpaper may be either the Lion or Mountain Lion default(they look pretty similar)-these are freely available on the internet. I'm currently using Yosemite wallpapers(different ones) in both Tiger and Leopard on my Quicksilver.

    I still use Lion pretty regularly, and I'm about 99% positive that it uses lit "dots"(like Leopard) rather than "bars" to indicate open applications on the dock.

    A lot of other stuff is still pretty much Leopard through and through-like the big "stoplights" on the windows, the scroll buttons, and the silhouette of the acrylic studio display for the display preferences drop-down in the menu bar.

    The buttons are rectangular. The progress bar doesn't look like any, it looks different.

    I've also noticed eyoungren did a lot of tweaking and made everything black
    How do you do that?
