> briefcase-style case.
> A Lenovo ThinkPad T61 (?), my brand new work machine running Windows 
> XP,  SQL Server and Visual Studio - I'm sorry! It had an E.ON asset 
> number sticker on the front-let of the lid. Both this and the Ubuntu 
> ThinkPad were in a new, black Targus backpack There were also a couple 
> of memory sticks in the front pocket of the bag.
> A white Apple iBook G4, with worn-off key caps on the often used letters
