iBook Mighty Pro

Wed­nes­day 21 Septem­ber 2005 01:27

While a scroll­pad is nice on the road, for oc­ca­sion­al desk use I rather use a mouse and a full-size key­board with my iBook. And avoid­ed hav­ing USB in­put de­vices un­til now, I went out and bought a Mighty Mouse and an Ap­ple Pro Key­board. The Mighty Mouse kind of sucks on the top of a white Ikea ef­fek­tif desk. The op­ti­cal doesn't track and while mov­ing it it rat­tles like a cheap white plas­tic box. The key­board is bet­ter with F keys go­ing all the way up to 16 and in­te­grat­ed vol­ume con­trol.

And in line with the iBook I bought a La­coste ca­su­al beige bag on the P.C. Hooft. It fits the 12" iBook per­fect­ly and has 2 ex­tra com­part­ments for the loader, the Might­ly Mouse and it can also store my P800 with head­set and trans­former. Only the ex­ten­sion cord may be a bit to bulky to get it in the bag, but I don't have to car­ry that around that much any­way. One thing that an­noys me about the iBook is the to­tal­ly grip-less pow­er jack of the adapter. It looks slick and shiny and lights up or­ange or green, but it doesn't re­al­ly help try­ing to pull it out of the iBook: you ei­ther have to pull the cord or pry your nails be­hind it...
