Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

 
 

No Trackpad on the PowerBook 150

Send Article to a Friend

No Trackpad on the PowerBook 150 according to Apple. Apparently a popular weekly paper publication slipped up and incorrectly stated that the new entry-level notebook computer sports one of the touch-sensitive devices found on the 500-series PowerBook models. In fact, the 150 has the same rolling trackball found on most previous 100-series models. [MHA]
