    This is really disturbing...

    Should I spend the extra for a super drive?

    I'm getting a new powerbook for school next year and I plan on getting the 15" with 1.67Ghz G4. I'd like to upgrade the HDD to 100Gb but it gets a bit costly even with my $200 student discound. I can save $135 by downgrading the superdrive to a combo drive but I have my reservations about...

    Sony Puppy Fingerprint ID

    Wow this thing looks cool, though I would have no use for it. I may just buy one though, maybe it will increase my geek factor :cool: Has anybody tried one of these before and could anybody speculate to what the difference is between the OS X and the windows version. Just software maybe?
