	Diminishing but not completely gone. I do most of my work on my  
MacBook which is approaching two years old now. But I'm glad I decided  
not to sell my G4 iBook (800 MHz) when I bought the MacBook. I keep it  
in the master bedroom at a desk and it's very handy to access there  
and also handy to use on the couch when I just need to web surf or  
check e-mail. I bought it in November 2003 and it doesn't make the cut  
for Leopard so it's still on Tiger, but that allows me to use my .mac  
account to keep both machines synced as far as Address Book, iCal and  
Safari Favorites are concerned so I'm happy. And a jump drive allows  
me to transfer files quickly so I sometimes even take it out with me  
to a bookstore coffee shop to do some writing or editing.
	I imagine it has some life left in it since my September 2001  
(September 11, to be exact) G3 iMac is still chugging alone just fine  
as well.
