The PowerBook arrived....
Scratched and dented.
The Fates are telling you to go Intel...that's the only possible explanation for your troubles.
you must be ripping. can you return it?
I'm arranging a return exchange right now.
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)
hope it works out!
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.
"Stringent Refurbishment Process"
Well that sucks!
You must be getting close to switching back to Windows with all the bad luck you've been having.
So you ordered a refurb...I was about to ask.
Still, that sucks!
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.
Wow, what's going on with your luck dude? I guess now is not the time to go to Vegas or play any lottery.
Oh yeah, windows machines never have hardware problems!
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
Like I have a year to wait.
iGary, I feel so sorry for you lately...
First went your PowerMac (how is it by the way?), now a new PowerBook!!
I sense some good in your future...
PowerMac is fine now - it's had a couple of spurts here and there, but nothing major.
What a bummer - it was so purty!
haha none of us won the bet i take it then.
Well at least your getting a new refurbished
So is that why we haven't seen any set up pictures yet? You know that's what we're all waiting for.
madjew, your avatar just made my day.
Thanks buddy. I can't take any of the credit/blame though. That's gotta be headed gekko513's way.
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?
