i received my new replacement 17" powerbook today from apple. my first one had a misaligned screen and one dead pixel. i called apple, complained enough, and they opted to send me another brand new one as a replacement. i am typing on it now while zeroing out the drive in the old 17" that i am shipping back to apple today. no dead pixels, screen is aligned properly, AND i get to enjoy the fresh new smell of a brand new powerbook ALL OVER AGAIN! hehehehehe lovin' it. thanks apple. you did me right.
