Laptops take great leap forward “Notebooks had long accounted for less than 20 percent of the worldwide PC sales mix. But notebooks broke the 20 percent mark last year and over the last several quarters have crept up to nearly 24 percent, according to IDC.” Sounds to me like good news for Apple.

Incidentally my wife just received a Gateway PC laptop through work. It’s a decent machine and the price was right (free as long as she works there), but it’s no iBook.

My upgraded PowerBook is still going strong although I’m probably going to use MacOS X 10.1′s upcoming arrival as a good excuse to overhaul my machine’s hard drive set up. Things could definitely be a little better organized. That, and I’d still like to max out the RAM.
