    I have a last gen apple 15" powerbook g4 with 120GB hdd, 2GB ram, bluetooth, wifi, and superdrive. itll be 2 years old in august. runs like a champ, but the newer ones are noticeable faster in most apps except final cut suite NON UB, and abode CS2 which i run both. cant complain.

    I have a Dell Ispiron 6000, and I love it. It has aprox. 7 hours of battery life, and I've had it for 1.5 years though it still works perfectly.

    I have the same as CBR but thinking of upgrading to a newer Mac. Pass the old one on to one of the kids.

    Toshiba A105-S2141 only a 2 hour battery life but thats because I still am using the original. Doesn't really matter since I have it plugged in most of the time.

    I don't own a Laptop. If I did, I'd rarely use it.

    I have a Powerbook Titanium... but I just broke the hinge. Think I might go for a MacBook.
    And anyone who has never had a wireless laptop has missed out on the thrill of browsing this site whilst sitting on the toilet...

    Dell Latitude Cpi, with 4 gig HD and a whopping 64 meg of ram. It is from the mid to late '90s. If I break it, so what, I will just pick up another $50.00 laptop.
