    I was just wondering what everyone has done with their old laptops before their new MBP or MB?

    I had a 2.0ghz BlackBook before my 2.8ghz mbp that i gave to my dad as he always complained he was behind technology (as they do).

    I never want to sell my BlackBook! First Mac and loved it to bits!

    I currently have three Apple laptops:

    - PowerBook 170
    - PowerBook G4/15
    - MacBook Pro 15

    I've sold or given away both Apple and PC laptops over the years.

    I hate abuse on any laptop. People who drink and eat around, scratch the casing and touch the LCD. Yuk Have more respect for your investment people!

    I keep all my old laptops: Powerbook 520C, Powerbook G4 (I use it to do most downloads and to serve as backup hard drive and media center connecting to XBOX 360).
