new macbooks. I have to admit the plastic was poised for action too.
Unfortunately When I actually got to see the macbooks I have to admit to
being more than a little disappointed, they just looked a bit...
well dull really.
The macbook pro didn't look or feel as nice as my TiBook 550, and none
of the macbooks expressed the fun of the Tonkabooks or the sensual
textures and curves of the older powerbooks (like the one in sex in the
city, a pismo or lombard?).
I can't fault the fact that the tech is light years ahead of my current
kit but none of it gave me *that* feeling I got when I bought my first
iMac and my first powerbook.
Maybe nostalgia plays a big role in this?
Now an intel duo core graphite or tangerine Tonkabook, *that* would have
me reaching for my flexible fiend ;-)
