    Bring a 17" powerbook to work, when they tell you why you have to use the PC, show them exatly how your productivity is increased with the Mac.

    I like that idea. (Well, any PowerBook, or even an iBook if you get desperate.) Don't like what they give you? Provide your own. They'll notice.

    The software is similar enough, you'll be fine.

    I like the Powerbook idea... but be careful... Company policies can be tricky... And manager egos can be even worse. I would stick with using their gear until you have at least been there awhile and have a better idea how they will respond. Productivity is good.... but not worth damaging your relationship with your supervisors. Besides, I did graphic design on PC for years... it's really not that bad... just not the preferred method.
