My 12" Powerbook still rocks on. Now with a new larger HD & new Fan, i think it's got some life to go yet. plus- it's dimensions, whilst not as thin, are smaller, when it comes to opening it on a train / plane / coach seat: macbook air=12.80" by 8.94", powerbook 12" = 11" x 8.5" ish. ok, so processor and looks aren't there, but i still believe that it's the best laptop apple have ever made. It runs Leo and does everything i ask of it. - for my real work, i have a proper computer- and proper screens. Sigh... after all that, i still don't deny i will weaken at the knees when i see "mba", however, I know my wallet won't.

Same here... it's nice, but not for me... too pricey. The other things I could deal with. I bought my 12" Pbook when I was starting into college. It was a Mac, and it was small... two of the requirements. the 17" & 15" models didn't even tempt me. Yeah, I'd like more work space when editing photos, but I can deal with that. I travel 100% of the time now, and I hope my Powerbook lasts a long long time.

...that being said, I think I could be convinced to accept a MacBook Air under certain conditions... like if you bought it for me..... :-D It's a pretty sweet looking machine, kinda a "wow, look what my fav. computer company did now!"
