Swank Hipsters and their Cool Macs

Friday, February 25th, 2005

Duran Duran has been having a reunion tour of sorts–the original band members from their MTV/Rio heyday–and this got me thinking about famous, well known, and other artists who use Macs. Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran has reportedly always used Macs when he started using a computer onstage. Here’s a recent pic:

I like that he has a special stand just for his ultra-wide PowerBook.
