Yes (Getting off topic, but I've attached an image)
If you can't find it and you still have my e-mail address ping me and we'll find it. This image is from Win7 Professional. (I'm about to upgrade to Enterprise, so I'm glad you asked me before I did that.)

Also, how can you see the iMac with the MacBook in the way.
Sorry about that. I think that I fixed it.
Actually I took that picture just to post on here. I use my iMac all of the time, the laptop has actually been sitting across the room in a bag it only came out for the picture and sometimes for school. My rig actually made it into MacFormat this month. I will post a pic soon
Yes I look goofy in the picture.

Of all the Macs I've owned, the 12" Powerbook has been my favorite. I wish they'd bring that form factor back.

Guys: I have a 2.6 MBP, so the G4 isn't my default computer. I like the 4:3 aspect ratio better, matte screen, and non-chiclet keys. This is and probably will always be my most favorite mac ever.

I still have a 12" PowerBook G4. It's a nice comfy computer. I rarely use it anymore, but if I could get a new battery, I'd take it to class instead of my 15" MacBook Pro.

I hate to be so honest, but I cannot really tell so far.
I think that it is either because I do not use the computer much or it is because I have to compare it directly to my iMac 27.
For the money, I do not think that you can go wrong.
I love the price and it was not too bad putting it in.
I will run some tests and let you know what I come up with soon.

Thanks. I appreciate it.
Yeah, it's not terribly expensive, but it's double the price of other 500GB drives. (I think)

How much was the desk? I checked the site, and the desk was $47 and the legs seemed to be priced at $15 each!?!? does that seem right?

I liked the silver keys of the previous MBP. I liked the look and feel better. Mine was stolen or I'd still have it. :-(

That's the only thing I'm not really over joyed with about my MacBook is the chicklet keys. I'd love to have those older silver ones. Those are great keyboards.

I found them useful enough, and they didn't have the light bleed-thru of the current gen keyboard.

It was awesome, but it was completely useless in intermediate lighting. Grey backlight on half-lit silver keys simply didn't work well.

How is the "bleed-thru" around the keys problematic for you? I just think it's pretty.

This was right after I finished the new office in the basement... it's a lot messier now...!

Dell 30" monitor with DVI KVM switch. MacPro behind the desk (you can just see the bottom of it underneath the desk to the right of the shelf unit). KVM hooked up to the MacPro, a MBP, and a Lenovo W500. Samsung 63" LCD with Matrix 4x4 switch with input from Cable, Roku, a MacMini Server, and the MacPro. Bose Companion 5 wired into the KVM so it serves up audio from all of the machines. Got audio routed in the ceiling too but that's wired into the home theater and is the "B" connection from the media room.



And, I know. It's a heck of a setup - took me twenty years to finally get everything the way I liked it.

Not really a setup, because my Ti hasn´t a defined workspace. The left one, a 667 MHz Ti serves as a third backup drive since it´s ATI graphic chip went south. When i have the time on my hand i plan to reflow/resolder the board. The right one is a 867 MHz Ti which eventually will be upgraded with an 1 GHz board.
