It's called the Gbreeze by MacMice. But it's probably discontinued because you can not find it on its website anymore.

For those that are interested, here's a reivew.

If you want, I can post more pictures about the stand. It's beautiful and it dissipates heat quite efficiently. Although the price is a bit too steep.

Yeah, we're in there tight. But what you don't see is the fact that we're bonding. Can't you feel the love? Well, love and wireless connection.

Love between Mac users (in a completely platonic way) is a beautiful thing. Plus I was a main driving force in converting all THREE OF THEM! Muh ha ha ha ha!

It's a Rev B 12" powerbook
Speakers are hooked up to the tv, dvd player and via Airport Express.

very nice pics urban. interesting angles.

and angelmb, thx.

i like the MX700 more simply because it has more buttons and works better with USB Overdrive (i use the regular MS Software for the Intellimouse Explorer 4.0. works okay, but the fact that it won't work as well with USBo means to me that it's not designed well enough to be openly friendly with an open software. but otherwise, the MS mouse is very nice. i just wish the smooth scrolling is even smoother.

i actually bought the MX900 first, but sicne there is no proper driver for Mac, it was slightly bumpy, very slight, but i can feel it and it irritates me. but when connected to my PC, it was as silky as my MX700. (which was also silky on the mac - but i don't wanna have to carry around that huge base to use it with. defeats the portability.

sworthy and urban: Did you guys ever read the Rules on Inline Images? I'll quote the rule for your convenience:

Inline images may not be wider than 480 pixels,... UNLESS the thread title includes "Picture Thread", "JPEG Orgy" or something to that effect.
I understand the rule contains a qualifier and this is a "picture thread." But, especially for urban, posting images that are 1024 pixels wide (and are then quoted by tekno_geek911) just unnecessarily screw up the page layout. Please scale down your images! Not everyone wants to stretch their browser window to the full width of their ACD.

Thanks!

Now back on topic...

Thanks, urban and techno_geek911. Properly sized images make all the difference. That aluminum stand does look cool, and the artsy composition of your pictures is fun.

I should have time to post setup pics with my new Rev.C 12-inch PowerBook in clamshell mode (with external LCD and Bluetooth keyboard and mouse) in the next week or two.

Sorry man to go against your opinion but this guy gets the Powerbook style of the year award. Hands down, it's the best looking setup here. It takes guts and lots of cash to get the machine painted and it's well done!

nono. don't get me wrong. i love wei's PB. it's a lovely shade of blue. but maybe i need to see it in person, but i'd imagine that it might look nicer if it's anodized in that blue color instead of clearcoated. but again - i might feel differently if i see it in person.

guys, thanks for the respone
there might be more ppl with coloured PB around, maybe they didnt post their pic. But i heard there's a red version around.
Im not sure how to describe it, but it does looks abit like anodized coat. despite it has a gloss finish instead of matt. I'll post a close-up pix later.
