Well I got my iBook back from its third mobo repair on thursday and I realized that in my haste of reinstalling OSX I formatted my iTunes library completely and it was time for AAC anyway. Well for all of yesterday and since I woke up this mornign I have been ripping cds to AAC 160. Its been many hours and i'm about halfway there with 1100 songs. So I wondered how long would it take you to rip all of your CDS? Also this isn't worth a new thread but apple is considering sending me a new iBook because my machine has had 3 mobo repairs. I Had problems with my battery and called to see when it would be here, well they said my machine was red flagged and they are considering a repclaemnt and for me to check back tomorrow. part of me says I like the style of my ibook 800 but the other part says that I like the faster cd burner, 100 mhz and bigger hard drive if they send me a new machine.
