Is yours one of the new shiny Powerbooks, or the older matte ones?

And the snowfields. FWIW, Australia has more acreage of snowfields than Austria. But not as spectacular, of course.

Also, I'd only have to drive for about three hours to get to country that has plenty of ice on water buckets in the mornings for several months of the year.

Just to watch your gee-whiz hardware melt the ice!

Yeah. Very likely.

The monitor is certainly a great price, but the graphic designers who rated it were less than impressed with it for professional work.

My MacBook Pro has SATA, so I could get one of those SSDs. Did you have any problems with the restore when you put yours in? What do you use for backups? Time Machine? Other?
