Something different from posting desktop Macs.

Three generations of Apple notebooks.

PowerBook G4 12" (Mid 2004)

MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2009)

MacBook Air 11" (Late 2010)

Why 3 laptops basically the same size?

My guess is he prefers notebooks with smaller displays for portability sake.

I'm the same... I'd pick the 11.6'' MBA over the 13.3'' model any day.

Just keeping the PowerBook as a collectors item.

MacBook Pro is for work.

MacBook Air is my personal notebook. Love it since day one!

Pretty much.

A Windows keyboard will have the Windows Logo as the Command key and ALT as Option. Just swap them out in Keyboard Preferences and you're good to go.

OMG! The least I can say is that you are equipped ;)

Great speakers by the way, mine are 5 years old I think and they?re still top-notch.

Well...upgrading to the base model 21.5" iMac from Apple under Applecare. My iMac 20" (mid-2007), system has had it's host of troubles from hard drive failures to Superdrive failures finally ending up in my headphone jack stopping working on the left channel. Throw in a randomly freezing USB system, I decided it was time to call them up. They agreed to replace my system and since they didn't have anything in their old systems to replace with are sending me this one:

21.5-inch iMac

Configuration

* 3.06GHz Intel Core i3

* 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB

* 500GB Serial ATA Drive

* ATI Radeon HD 4670 256MB GDDR3 SDRAM

* 8x double-layer SuperDrive

* Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (English) & User's Guide

* Magic Mouse

* Country Kit

The processor I have now is 2.0ghz so a nice little upgrade and then the video will be better I think. Not certain though as I haven't gone through all my stats on my current system, but will be shipping that out tomorrow or the next day to them and then getting the new one in about a week. Will be losing my 640gb hard drive in it now, but not too worried as I never use more than 300gb at a time it seems. :)

Of course, if I wanted to, I could have gotten more for extra $$$ but since it is a straight across exchange, I am pretty happy 'bout it.

Now, of course, I don't know exactly how things work where you live but the US got pretty good consumer laws too if I am not mistaken. Over here in Sweden if a device (or whatever really) breaks in the same way 3 times or different ways 4 (might have changed to just breaks 3 now) you "cancel" the purchase and get a full refund, can't imagine there isnt something similar in the US, so really don't think you would have needed the apple care :p but it's pretty sweet none the less :p

Repost from the workstations thread. I think there's enough Apple that it belongs here too. :p

I did a little re-arranging today.

From left to right:

RadioShack Pro-164 radio scanner

Logitech Z-2300 Speakers (sub is under the printer on the floor)

LG 22" LCD

21.5" iMac (most recent generation)

iPhone 4 16gb

iPad 64gb wifi+3G

13" MacBook Air ultimate (most recent generation)

And of course the little Apple remote in the middle for the Apple TV (off frame to the right with my tv/360)
