    The Fates are telling you to go Intel...that's the only possible explanation for your troubles.

    oh no

    Agreed. That is the only way il take it. The 'Powers That Be' want you to go Intel. Especially if its a 17, cos then you'd have ordered before the refresh.

    Go Intel, and fry your lap (but have years of support through x86 software)

    Ah....but I do believe it. If it had been anybody else, I wouldn't have. I don't know what it is, but I think the Apple Gods have decreed that you shall endure this until you can endure no more (so let it be written, so let it be done).

    Return Label coming via e-mail. Hopefully I'll get one on Thursday.

    I was willing to let the scratch on the back slide, but then I went to open the lid and the frame was bent outward.

    Well that sucks!

    You must be getting close to switching back to Windows with all the bad luck you've been having. :p ;)

    RE: Woes

    Sorry to hear about your troubles... I had probs to with refurbs. Took Apple 2 times to get it right but when they did it was immaculate. Hang in there, Apple will make it right. You might even get freebies for the trouble... Always a bonus.

    Good luck
    :)

    That's the problem, I'd never go back, so I'm stuck with putting up with this for now. Oh well.

    New PB, no MBP? The day Photoshop goes universal, you will regret saving the $500

    PowerMac is fine now - it's had a couple of spurts here and there, but nothing major.

    What a bummer - it was so purty! :D

    So is that why we haven't seen any set up pictures yet? You know that's what we're all waiting for. :p

    The Mac mini I convinced my family to get had weird scratches all over the top. They weren't even like scratches though, more like permanent little smudges. We just kept it though. It took convincing to get them to switch to Mac and I didn't want them to buy one and then have to send it right back because it had a problem with it!

    I was just wondering how your Powerbook worked out and came upon this thread. How unbelievable! The technology gods are surely frowning upon you. :( Hopefully they get it right this time?
