So. It happened. My Tibook bit the dust. We use the machine is our band, and I was opening up the lid to set it up with the MIDI keyboard and it cracked. The thing is, with the drummer and keyboard player banging away, I didn't really hear the crack... and I kept opening it. The hinges both snapped, and we had to support the monitor against a mic stand. Ouch. Anyway, I have a three year CompUSA warranty and should be able to get a replacement. That said.... I dunno if I should grab a 12" (what i've been lusting after) or a 1ghz 15.... or like, a few ibooks.... or should I suffer w/o laptop for a few weeks and see what's new coming out. Now remember, I won't have to pay at all...so it doesn't hurt if I end up a generation behind.
