There may be other threads that covered this, but are there any stands that will support the 17" PowerBook? My PodiumPad is still a bit small, and the screen shakes when I type. :( I'm just looking for something to let me type at an angle. Any suggestions?

Not sure that this helps, but I use the iCurve stand with my 17" PowerBook and it works great, but it isn't really made for typing on the PowerBook directly. It's better suited for using with an external keyboard as are most stands that I've seen.

Yeah, I only use the iCurve with a 12", but if you do try to type on it while it's in the iCurve, there is a noticeable suspension effect that could bother. I attach an external keyboard.

I'm not purposely trying to hijack this thread, but I'm in the same boat as well (sort of)


I am currently thinking about buying an iCurve for my 17" PowerBook, but I am deciding on what keyboard to get... (either will be Apple)

-Apple Bluetooth Keyboard
-Apple USB Keyboard

I already have an Apple bluetooth mouse, and I have an extra USB port... it is "worth" paying $40+ more (I forgot how much $$$ difference there was). Do most people who have iCurve use wireless or wired?

:confused: :confused: :confused:


Thanks!

My guess is wireless would be your best option with an iCurve... unless wires and a free USB port are not enough to warrant the extra $40.
