The mystique of owning my first Apple product has worn off. In a bad way. Never again am I going to listen to my gut instinct that Apple computers really are crash-resistant machines. I should have listened to my friends and steered clear. But once I saw the new MacBook back in May. I had to get one. I took my MacBook in to the Genius Bar twice yesterday. Bringing to my total service problems up to four within one month. I had the random shutdown problem, that was fixed somehow to twice having the vertical lines problem, RAM replaced, and then my computer wouldn't boot up at all. Considering this is my first Apple computer and all this has happened, I'm never buying another one. I'll never forget the memories of how great a computer my MacBook was for those short three months it worked perfectly.
