bought a new iBook G4 on friday (800mhz, 680MB ram, 30GB HDD, dvd/cd-rw) and finally had time to sit down with it last night. to my unpleasant suprise, it seemed to be rather sluggish from the offset. windows seems to 'hesitate' in opening, and it simply didn't respond as well as i had expected it to. i thought little of it at first, thought maybe it was just me being used to a PC interface. i continued setting up my machine. after i'd installed my software, i noticed that the overall performace in my programs (mostly audio editting and similar, i.e. pro tools, reaktor, etc) was only slightly better than that of the blueberry clamshell i'd bought this machine to replace, and obviously slower than the no-bells-or-whistles 700mhz PC laptop i use aswell. there's also a few cosmetic problems with the machine which had me worried from the point of opening the box... the casing is slightly warped on the keyboard/trackpad surface, and the battery casing rattles a bit. has anyone else seen problems of this nature with their machines?
