    Well, this does it. I was considering sending my PB 15 back to Amazon due to seeing some faint lines. Now I will definately do it! It was almost perfect otherwise, no dead pixels and the battery lasted over 4 hours. Then I did the recalibration of the battery... Now it lasts about 10 minutes! Looses 1% per minute.

    It is going back. I had such high hopes for the last PPC powerbook.


    Oh well, lets hope the intel PBs have better quality!

    Does this happen every time you calibrate it? Have you tried it more than once?

    You know what the problem probably is? That Jobs is focused on the intel macs, and just wanted to get the powerpc team to get the powerbook out without wasting too much time on old tech. ;) I just suspect that they were rushed and weren't given much attention by Jobs. He didn't even attend their launch.
