Wired reports on Army Major Shawn Weed, who was issued a Panasonic Toughbook for use in the deserts of Kuwait, but quickly ditched it for a 1Ghz PowerBook G4. “The U.S. military is shipping a lot of hardware to the Middle East for the impending war on Iraq, but only one Mac. In the entire theater of operations, involving nearly 300,000 troops and hundreds of tanks and aircraft, one lonely Macintosh shipped out, according to the major who took it there.”
