After 34 days of waiting and Apple messing me about my 17" MBP C2D finally arrives! However, it doesn't work! During the initial setup stages once booting the MBP for the first time, it asks for which keyboard layout I wish to use. Upon selecting any of the languages, the computer screen goes black and the kernal panic screen comes up telling me to turn off my computer. It's no surprise to me though... In total, over 3 years I have spent £12,500 on Apple Computers and so far I have never received a fully functional computer first time without having to send it for repair. First it was a 1.25GHz Al PowerBook G4 which I had to send back 3 times before I finally got a functional computer. Then it was a PowerMac G5 which went to sleep every 5 minutes and sounded like it was going to take off! It still has the problem, not as persistent but I use it everyday so I can't send it back again! Then it was an iMac G5 which I have had to send back 4 times. Finally Apple have replaced the piece of garbage with a C2D machine so that makes me a bit happier. But now they are having a joke! Over a month I have waited for the MBP to arrive and it's packed away ready to be thrown back at Apple. One very very very unhappy customer who can't live without OSX, but has to put up with Apple!
