Well, not sure if it's strange, but I will say this .. I have a powerbook G4 and have been saving my overtime money at work for my next computer -- the powerbook G5. I'll drool like a dog when Steve introduces the dual 3 ghz G5 at WWDC, but I won't get one. I LOVE the portablility of the powerbook. It's unlike anything on this planet. I love unplugging it and going to starbucks on a whim. I love everything about the portable factor. But my powerbook is older. 400 mhz. I'm bothered by the speed, but I'm so loyal that I will wait until the new line is introduced.
And I'll add that to this day, people stare at me and my computer at Starbucks. And no, I checked, it's not because my zipper is down or I have a pigeon on my head. They still like the sexy powerbook!! :-D
Look at the line. Every Mac user wanted one when they got introduced (look at how many people on the mac web talked about ordering one the day they were introduced) Great screen size, plenty of power, and one of the smallest lines Apple has ever produced. Compared to a decent tower set up there aren't too many reasons to choose a tower over one, at least in my mind. The only reason I don't have a G4 'book is because I don't have the money to get a decent one, and even then I still have other portables I use as much (and sometimes more) than my desktops.
