Alton Brown

Food Network's ( Alton Brown, the host of Good Eats, is not just the host of the most entertaining cooking show in existence. He's an unabashed Mac fan -- as evidenced by the 12-inch PowerBook G4 that's popped up in numerous recent episodes, replacing his trusty clamshell iBook and Titanium PowerBook. "I am beyond a user -- the PowerBook never leaves a 6-foot radius of my body," says Brown, who also uses the PowerBook with Digidesign's Pro Tools and Mbox to record all the show's voice-overs from a home recording studio.
