Tamara Keel finds herself easily distracted, so she's trying to pick the right PowerBook or iBook to use as a writing tool - without the Internet to tempt her away.

If our home office wasn't part of our greatroom, and my wife wouldn't kill me for putting a desktop on the partner desk that we use our Macbooks on together, I would so buy an SE/30 off of eBay and use it for my writing. Lord knows, when I was in college, those were the machines to get onto when you were writing papers or just checking your email from a terminal client. Talk about a distraction-free writing environment!

At the moment, I am really rocking out on the 2400c. Itty bitty keyboard or no, it's just so "take it anywhere" portable.

Although I found room for a tv tray set up in a corner and I'm going to play with my all-in-ones over the next couple of weeks, too. It's probably some kind of sin to let a working Color Classic collect dust, after all...

I've always toyed with the idea of purchasing a 2400c to take notes on instead of the more weighty Kanga G3 and 1400c I have had in the past, but the 2400c being so thick, I was never able to fully justify it as being small enough to compensate for the pretty penny they still command on eBay.
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

It's thick, but not unreasonably so. It's the same thickness as my Duo 280c, but looks chubbier because it's smaller in length & width. It's no harder to carry around than a "trade paperback"-size softcover book.
