    Shift+Option+Delete

    That funny icon with a X in it is the Delete (Backspace on a PC) key.

    The Powerbook only has a Delete key (Backspace on PC). Is there an equivalent for the DELETE key on PC for the Mac? The difference is that one deletes backwards, while the other deletes forward, if you get what i mean.. (a bit hard to explain, but if you constantly use the Backspace and Delete key on a full size PC keyboard you'll know what i mean)

    Get the full sized Apple BT Keyboard? The PB/iB doesn't have physical Home/End, PgUp/PgDn keys either. Can be irritating if you are used to 104 key keyboards.

    The original Apple BT keyboard is like >$100. Yes you can connect it to a bigger LCD when on your desk. However resolution will be the same as the iBook (1024 x 768). PowerBooks can run in Extended Desktop mode, where the external monitor becomes a secondary monitor (and extends the Mac OS X desktop) and the resolution can be set higher than 1024x768 if the monitor supports it.

    What I meant is, that 15" or 17" or bigger monitor will run at 1024 x 768 though they are capable of higher resolutions. The new iMac G5 does indeed look good.

    Oh yes got something to share with you guys. Shift-Backspace on the mac is equivalent to the Delete key on the PC. Found it out this afternoon.

    Hmm, I tried Shift-Delete on my PowerBook and it still behaves as a Backspace.

    Nope, doesn''t work. All I got was a Mac error beep.

    Option-Delete deletes entire words, and Shift/Control Delete behaves as the Delete (Backspace) key alone.

    Ok, I played around a bit.

    Fn Delete on a PowerBook = Forward Delete
