    to use with my 15" powerbook :) im very happy, have been debating about getting a new macbook pro but understandably it is a bit expense.

    im mainlt using my current powerbook for photo editing etc so i think this is definately the best option until my opinion is better swayed to getting a new laptop. i dont really like the new macbook and will probably get a new 1.67 17" powerbook off ebay which i have seen for about £1200. i think its a great deal given i can always sell my current machine for about £500+ so the extra spending will be worth it, more so than a macbook which wont give me the performance increases in the programs i actually run on a daily basis..

    well ill post some pics when ive got it all set up so you can see how it looks. i think getting a nice bluetooth keyboard is the next step as i have the bluetooth mouse and combined i will have a nice desktop (read sofa) setup - while being able to pull the cables and take it with me when needed!

    cant wait to recieve it!

    Yes, it's all essential for the good little Apple disciple. ;)

    Those Cinema Displays are gorgeous. A friend has two of them hooked up to his G5 PowerMac. Goit.
