Yesterday I took my PowerBook (12" 1.5ghz Superdrive) to the apple store because of its sleep light problems. The genius told me it was a logic board problem and it would need a new one. So then he said I needed to back up my data. I thought of saving most of my files onto my iPod- OH WAIT, thats right, it died and they won't fix it (HD failure). I could spend $50 to have them back up my data for me- which I'm not going to do because that is just outrageous. So I'm either going to buy a LaCie external HD, or borrow my friends 300gb Maxtor ext. HD. I am really upset with apple. I love their products when they work. There physical appearence is amazing, and the software is great. But in my experience with apple, their harware just does not last. Seriously I have had an iPod last up to 11 monthes and my powerbook less than 6 monthes. This is just absurd. I have had it up to here (hand raised above head). Honestly I have had less problems with all the PCs I have ever owned. Again, I love apples products. They "just work" when they work, but it's really annoying how frequently they break. I am really upset with apple's quality control, or at least my experience with it.
