Indeed, my desktop machine is a 17" Powerbook with a cinema
display...but computers with Great Big Balls do all the heavy lifting
around here. I simply haven't seen a hardware/OS combination in an x86

processors. But then I suspect my applications are a bit different
than yours due to the line of work I'm in, so to each his own!
