I just wanted to know if anyone else has encountered this problem with the Aluminium powerbooks. Mine is a 1.33GHz 15" effort. Now I really like it and have enjoyed it over the last 18 months but a strange thing has happened. The case over the top of my optical drive has buckled inwards, to such an extent that the slot drive looks like a sneering smile. Disks will go in but the little buggers won't come out without me grabbing them very quickly and yanking hard... otherwise they get pulled back into the drive. This bad, very bad. I have Dixons (UK) cover on the laptop but I'm dreading using it - I've heard bad things about their customer service. Has anyone else come across this issue. My only theory is that its where my hand has rested while I use the trackpad and over time this has caused the case to buckle. As an aside, the case doesn't seem very tough at all compared with my old Ti Book. Still, I'll keep buying Powerbooks so I guess I have no excuse... Sean.
