    My sexy hot new PB but have some dislikes...
    I recently bought the powerbook g4 1.67ghz 17inch. I must admit its an amazing machine. It is noticebly slower than my 1.7ghz pentium m dothan. Well no kidding dothans runs cirlces around my pb. But i must admit I love the sleekness of the powerbook g4 and it just looks professional. I must admit this is my first apple and I love it!!! I think im goign to buy an powermac but im going to wait untilthey relase the 3ghz version. And I really cant wait till the pb g5 gets here. Trust me folks its coming!! Either that or some suped up g4 running at over 2.2ghz and 600mhz bus yea i doubted freescale will ever come up with that. I have more trust on ibm well im getting off topic but I have to say I love macs but im still keeping my laptop to do rendering and photoshop. I downloaded a trial version on my powerbook omg huge difference on my windows. I mean huge differnce. I guess those g4's apple uses are pushing them to their max limit. I dont know how much further those slow chips can go. But w.e. i love the backlight keyboard and I love how cool and it hardly ever makes hd and fan noises. I give this pb 10/10 besides for the slow preformance!

    I wouldn't get a case. Thieves specifically look for laptop cases, esp. the name brands like Targus, Samsonite, and Kensington. I know that style is probably high on your list, but look into buying a cheapo backpack (not a bag) from your local super-mart and placing it in there. People will just assume you have books or folders/papers in there and will therefore be less likely to steal your expensive PowerBook.

    Specs:
    stock 17" 2.8ghz unibody mbp.
    try googling acme-made laptop bags.. the "designer slim" - there is a pink one i believe..

    i'm gonna get one myself for my 12" but a nice sleek black one.. the cases are very contempoary and minimal..

    just out of curiousity... what is slow about your pb? i had a 2.4ghz gateway p4 laptop. and my powerbook 1.5ghz kicks the heck out of it from surfing to rendering.....
