So today i decide i want to dive back into macworld. I am currently using a thinkpad t61 but lately been doing a lot of graphic design and when i ordered the thinkpad i opted for a dedicated x3100 video chipset. So i take a drive down to my local apple store choose th 15" 2.4 model. To make it short when I got home I noticed they were 2 tapes ,one slit across and one on top to cover the other one. So my first impression is "ITS USED" I am pissed at the fact that I just paid retail and I got a used computer. So I call the store speak with the manager and he explains to me in a rude way by the way that all macbook pros had to be opened to INSTALL leopard. I did not buy the story so I called lincoln road apple store. And, I asked the same question the lady on the phone tells me theres no way that would happen because the latest shipments have leopard installed from factory. She puts me on hold comes back and tells me that it appears that all macbook pros where opened for leopard I SAID OK blah blah hung up the phone opened the computer and what do i get TIGER INSTALLED. I said FINE giving apple the benefit of the doubt AGAIN.I commence to install leopard and low and behold i get a YELLOW TINT accross the screen i am upset at this point. I ONCE AGAIN give apple the benefit of the doubt and install leopard thinking maybe the video dirvers need to be installed (i know that was not the case been working with computers for over 12 years just being hopeful) The computer finishes the installation and I finally get to see leopards intro screen but wait a minute is BLURRY... I get to the registration screen where you input all the info and the font is unreadable distorted, out of focus type of problem. I SAID ONCE AGAIN MAYBE WHEN I GET TO THE DESKTOP IT WILL FIX ITSELF (now keep in mind my ocd is already on active mode at this point i think the computer was used, returned and re-wrapped so im not happy but im willing to fight my ocd and move on) I get to the desktop finally and it still looks like crap I move the lcd screen back and POOF it is clear the font is sharp just like other awesome apple screens im happy but it did not last long within 10 seconds the screen goes into a purple tint then fixes itself then goes back to a yellow tint fixes itself and then the tint is gone but the font and the screen is distorted again. I gave apple the benefit of the doubt more then 1 time in a span of 1hr and as much as i hate to say this. APPLE 2007 SUCKS I knew 10 years ago that once apple gained marketshare the quality level will drop and i was right. Take this as a warning because it sounds like their pushing the fish thats about to turn. Theres an agenda gooing on at apple right now and is not in favor of us the consumers. Might be updates forthcoming and their pushing all the stock they have or apple products just are made up of cheap components and are no longer the quality we use to get. Going back to the store tomorrow to get my money back i know they will try everything in their power to charge me the re-stocking fee but i will not go down without a fight. Just really dissapointed is like apple is wasting so much time on otehr stuff that leave their main busines on the sideburner. By the way to get in the apple store i had to wait 15 minutes because accroding to them they are "trying to improve customer shopping" they should concentrate more on ironing out perks on a 2500 dollar laptop.
