    My favorite was always the PowerBook 520/540 “Blackbird” with its very distinctive design that never failed to turn heads. TWO batteries, one could be replaced with a PCI card adapter.
    This was the first laptop ever to have a trackpad instead of a trackball.
    I bought an old 520 fifteen years ago from eBay and that trackpad is still Perfect, something no PC trackpad could ever aspire to.
