I'm sure that if I spent enough time doing research, I could eventually figure this out for myself, but aI was hoping that those of you who have been here for awhile might be able to save me some time . . . . What I'd like to know is which makes have a history of being more reliable and requiring fewer repairs. What I've seen in recent posts here suggests that people are having a variety of different issues with MBs and MBPs, lots of issues with certain (but not all) iMacs, fewer issues with PBs, almost no issues with iBooks, and no issues with Mac minis - new or old. Now, the reason for some of what I've seen is obvious - the iBooks and PBs were purchased ages ago. So, clearly, no one is going to be posting today about problems they're experiencing with their "new" iBook! That's where I was hoping those of you who'd been here longer could help me out. Did the iBooks (and PBs) also have lots of different failures when they first came out? Were the problems resolved with later revisions? And are there other common repair issues with the older machines that people don't even bother to mention anymore because it's "old news"? Thanks!
