    Glowy...thing
    What kind of mac laptop has a glowy apple logo on it? I feel as if I've seen that before. I must have it.

    Yup, and it is not a separate light, it's just from ambiant light from the display; no additional power is used

    Wrong!!

    Actually, the light comes from the TFT's backlighting, if you reduce the brightness, you also reduce the glow of the apple logo. However, if your using your powerbook on the windowsill on a bright sunny day, this will cause the centre of your display to be slightly lighter than the rest. And when sleeping, you can just about make out the logo on the dimmed display (i don't always close it)

    Well I wasn't entirely off, and that without the benefit of seeing a Powerbook post 23 floor express descent
