    So early this year, I bought my wife a slightly used Powerbook off eBay. 1.67 gHz, 100 gb hd, 512 mb RAM, Applecare. $1200. Fast forward to December. The computer stopped latching properly. Take it to my friendly neighborhood Apple Store. They say they're going to ship it in and it will be back to me within 7-10 business days. It's now been 1 month, and no laptop. I call in and after an hour on the phone, I talk to a nice supervisor who tells me I can wait until that part comes in January 31, as it's been back ordered. Or if I'd like, she'll send me out a brand-spankin-new 17" Mac Book Pro. 2.16 gHz Core 2 duo, 2 gb RAM, AppleCare, 160 gb hd. I tell her that that will be sufficiant. So as I type this on my year-old iBook, I am a bit jealous of my wife.

    Just give her the iBook and take the MBP for yourself...come on, I'm sure you deserve it more than her. lol. That, or beg. I find that works sometimes as well.

    Was the Powerbook G4 a 17" or did Apple just offer the best possible model to compensate?

    UPS lost my labtop once. Toshiba sent me a refurbished replacement after they told me I would get a New one. So we flipped ****, I ended up getting a new upgraded model. My dad had no clue where to send the refurbished one and since they took over a month to get this all straightened out he said let them call for it, hes not going to ask where to send it. If they want it so badly, then can do some work for it. 1 month later my old labtop shows up at my door, unrepaired. In the end my dad figured out what was wrong with that labtop and we ended up keeping all 3. This was several years ago.

    She has 17" powerbook. And I can't take her mbp, as she's legally blind and needs the screen real estate (also how I managed to get such a hot wife;) )
