the multicolored death of my first powerbook

Spooky had seen better days.

The fan ran more often than not, the damned thing sounded like it was wheezing. Probably not technically possible, but I figured the hard drive (its second) was going to generate enough heat to melt something.

But it was an unplanned and sudden drop to floor that finally put an end to its long and useful life.

Sure, I spent more time with the new model PowerBook from last April. (And if I’m being honest, with the ThinkPad from work.) But this machine was my first laptop, so I’ll always have a soft spot for it.

Goodbye, first generation titanium PowerBook.
