A black carpet is under my keyboard and mouse. Since the desk is glass and the optical mouse will not work, so hence the black carpet. I also employ a wrist rest.

If you are referring to the last picture in the series, I was merely showing the cable management.

Maybe we can do a trade. I'd love to swap out some of my black keys with white keys. PM me if you are interested.

AppleCare didn't take care of the Macbook that died? That seems strange that you had to by another.

Maybe he wanted C2D? ::shrug::

I'm itching for the Santa Rosa MBPs... it's taking a LOT of patience not to run out and buy a C2D 15.4" MBP right the hell now.

They have to be releasing a new case design for the Macbook Pro and when they do I'm upgrading to the current Gen Macbook Pro refurb baby. They will be so cheap.

Yep, it's definitely bright. I have the brightness on my 19" wide (on the left) set to 100%, and the large display is at 50%, and they're about the same. And it only cost me $200, so I'm quite happy with it!

This is my "blackbook" one of 2 identical ones. The other one is mobile and goes with me to work or out on the balcony. This one is in a wallunit in my bedroom.

I'm just wondering what is your blackbook sitting on?

Hi Craigb6.
It's sitting on a notebook cooler
StarTech.com - Notebook Cooler
I liked this one because I can set the strength of the fan speed. Its doing a good job of keeping the notebook from heating up too much.

Ghettochild,

What do you have your Powerbook resting on that gives it that angle. I see a little bit of it peeking out of hte front, but can't ID it. Also, what is the white brick just behind?

Which brick?

The stand, as you probably have already seen in the "comparative study,' is the iRac. It's cheap and it does the job just fine.

I did a little rearranging and came up with this set up.







I took my old school Apple keyboard and painted the keys

blackbook22,
Your desktop is a drawing of your set up. That's amazing. What do you do for a living? Also what Sony monitor is that? It looks awesome!

Yes that is a graphic of my desk/wallunit. Its a bit out of date. At the time it was drawn I had a vaio laptop and mac mini, then when mac's went intel and I could put bootcamp in a mac I got rid of the windows laptop and mac mini. I teach computer privately mostly to seniors and mid-aged who are struggling with computers. I love it!!! The Monitor is the Sony SDM-P234 Its a 23". It was the last monitor that Sony made. I got 2 of them and the other is hooked up to the windows desktop in my office. My next buy is going to be a G5 to replace the windows desktop. I am waiting for Leopard to come out first

Congratulations. I love the blackbook. People complain that you can see fingerprints but that is minor I just wipe it down in 2 seconds. Black is much more sleek looking than the white. I just wish they would make a black wireless keyboard and mouse

Other companies do. I'll probably get a bluetooth mouse eventually. It isn't often I'm on an actual desk though.

Here is mine, I agree the Black Macbook is a finger print magnet but a little Windex and it takes the finger prints right off.

Very cool. I just sold one of my blackbooks and have ordered the new core 2 duo blackbook like yours with 2 gigs of ram. I also ordered the 30gig video ipod which my nephew is getting (he's paying the difference of price from the free ipod offer) as I already have the 30gig ipod.

I know that is why I am surprised that apple hasn't offered them in black. you can get a wired mighty mouse in black so why not the bluetooth one!!!

I don't think you can get wired ones in black.
I miss the days of the G5 and XPS Pentium 4 running side by side as high-end machines.
