Thanks for asking, but I rarely throw interesting hardware away or get rid
of it. :-) Call it a sickness.
ppc in a laptop is pretty cool. I only wish Apple wouldn't have used
"crippled" Power processors... (I'm working in a Power5 shop now so I can
appreciate what the platform is capable of). I think a dual Power5 Power
Mac would have been the bomb but it's too late to lament that now.
In the meantime, I still use it from time to time (strictly as another
desktop these days... too beat up to cart around anymore) and have some
side projects brewing that will see a lot of use out of this thing.
