Trusty Old PowerbookI have picked up for my writing one ot the best laptops ever made for writers. The keyboard is a dream. My G3 Powerbook "lombard" maybe 12 years old but it is the most comfortable laptop to type on that I have ever tried. And with the wonderful Mac OS X this old workhorse is still very much useable and relevant even now over a decade later. I also find the design to be much more rugged and durable then the Aluminium MBPs a design first introducted with the G4 Powerbooks. The metal case looks cool but definitely shows wear and tear much more.
Unfortunately the power supply in my Lombard died and it would no longer turn on. Fortunately I found a very gently used G4 Powerbook for $150 in fact I am writing this on it right now and I could not be happier with my newest find.
