Slightly weird.. Muddy Waters is a good (my favorite mocha) coffee house, and they've become very laptop-friendly, pointing out power sockets and their free WiFi.

There are currently five laptops in the room. All of them PowerBooks. ^_^ (Aha! No, there's what might be a Dell too)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Of course I was thinking of the classic Alfred Hitchcock "The Birds" moment, but that certainly works as well. Assimilation is almost as good as annihilation.

I've had pretty... mixed luck with Powerbooks lately, myself. Only a few months ago my colleagues at work insisted I get upgraded from my "trusty" old Titanium 867 to a 1.5 Ghz Aluminum. (I make a point out of holding onto ancient equipment for as long as I possibly can.) To be honest, in most respects I ended up regretting the swap. The new one "out of the box" managed about teh same battery life as the worn-out Ti, and power management problems galore haunted me for months. Bleah.

Just last week I was given one of the new 1440x960 high-res 15" models after the "sleep of death" simply became intolerable and apparently incurable, and so far that one seems to be working well enough. Toes crossed, of course.
