    I take my Powerbook everywhere! It sits on a pedestal at work and at home (well, actually they're monitor stands) and travels with me everywhere. I'm never without online access because I can connnect my sprint phone to my PB and be online in a matter of seconds. At home it's WiFi all the way so i can sit out on the back porch and download or listen to music on iTunes, watch movies, send email, chat, and even get some work done, if the mood strikes me

    I got my Powerbook for my university program because it's mandatory for all students to purchase a mac, not pc. So far, I'm pleased with the Mac, however, I still use the PCs since there are a few things I still haven't figure out on the Mac that I can do on the PC.

    I use my Powerbook for school work mainly, and Internet. I like how Macs look better than PCs, but it cost too much. : (

    Nope... sorry. But going to the apple dealer on a saturday morning with a rucksack full of shattered bits from what used to be a PB17 brought a tear to a few passerby's. They all wanted to know what happened... the engineer was just in complete shock! Specially since the machine's less than a month old.

    I still have the bits... maybe when i get a decent digital cam, i'll take some pics. The engineer gave me a complete set of manuals, i guess he thought it'll be funny to reassemble the machine while i waited two weeks for the replacement. When it arrive, they sent me a PB15 with superdrive.

    Well... I'm happy with a new PB. My last project covered the cost of the PB17... still it's a experience. I'm no longer curious at what a PB looks like after a flight!

    Got any crazy glue anyone?

    Well, disamn yo....that's pretty wack. I wish I could see my powerbook fly, and then have enough money for a new one....If mine flew now, I wouldn't see another one for many a moon. But, good to hear you did get a replacement.

    I wish more schools were like that, although for me part of the joy of Apple is being different. Maybe I'm just weird.

    I use my Powerbook solely when I'm hiding underneath my bed. The rest of the time, I don't use a computer.

    My University's computer science program highly recommends Macs now, instead of PCs for the sole reason of OS X (Unix). The program requires a ton of Linux work, and they also got really tired of Windows crashing and slowing down their progress. So, they're killing two birds with one stone and everybody is getting Macs.

    I'm starting the CS program this fall, so, I picked up a new Powerbook a while back.

    i use it in front of my desktop PCs.
    Basically neglect the not-so-attracting PCs unless i really need to run some programs under winxp.

    Now that I've had my Powerbook for a while, I find myself using it more and more. I generally take it everywhere with me. Right now I'm kicked back on my bed listening to my iPod, and perusing the posts.

    The other day my girlfriend and I were at Starbucks, both with our Powerbooks open, and I was doing some research for my upcoming college project. We were inside next to the window and this guy that was outside right next to the same window, also had a 12" Powerbook. He slowly turned back and looked at us, and then did a quick double take when he saw two more Powerbooks. These things are really getting popular, I'm seeing more and more of them each day.
