I think I must be the most desperate person for a new MBP. Below is how I currently have to use my old PowerBook G4: - The hard-drive is there because I filled up my internal drive about six months ago (all my photos and music are on the external drive) - The USB dongle is because my Bluetooth no longer works and that's the easiest way to now transfer files to my housemate's iBook. - As the screen went black last week, I now have to have the computer plugged into my TV via a DVI to PC cable. - The power cable is because my battery lasts no more than an hour (even with no monitor to power!) - The bottle of gin (not shown) is to calm my nerves every time I see the spinning beachball of doom - which is often. I have the money sitting in the bank waiting for Apple to announce their lovely new MBPs, but I don't know how much longer I can wait. My laptop is now anything but! So come on - anyone think they're more desperate for a new MBP? I doubt it!!
