Is that a Mac laptop? How come it won't recognize the keyboard and mouse? (I suppose that's a rhetorical question: if you knew why...)

I've used laptops exclusively for the last several years. My last desktop machine was a beige G3, c. 1998. I use a USB keyboard and mouse--when I'm at work I switch the keyboard and mouse back and forth between my MacBook Pro and a WinXP laptop, using a KVM switch. When I'm at home, I have an external 15" monitor plugged into the MB Pro, so I don't even miss the extra screen real-estate. Though, of course, it would be nice to have a 24" or 30" screen...
