I finally broke down and bought myself a 12 inch Apple Powerbook laptop. I’m still in the honeymoon phase of my purchase so don’t expect this to be an entirely rational review of it. So far, I’m pretty impressed by how easy it was to get it setup, particularly the networking aspects of it. I was pretty scarred by networking in the windows world and impressed by how much easier it was on a linux box. It was equally as simple on the Powerbook, especially hooking up to a wireless network. At the office it found our wireless setup and used dhcp to get its settings without any hassle.
