Well, about a week and a half ago I finally took my first steps into the world of Mac with the purchase of a MacBook Pro from my local Apple reseller in the UK. I'm now back in Belgium, and I've finally taken the opportunity to burn my CD collection into iTunes...I managed about 300 discs in a week, but now my Superdrive is dead, not reading the discs at all and making whirring clicking noises when I try. Prior to that, I had noticed some issue where sometimes I'd put an audio disc in the drive, but it wouldn't be recognised/burned until I ejected it and reinserted it - I figured that was just a mac quirk until the drive died. So, this lunchtime I guess I'll drop over to a Brussels Apple reseller and see what they say...I know they probably won't be able to replace the whole machine quickly - as when I asked there previously when I was looking to buy, they had to place special orders for the versions with the UK keyboard (which is why I bought in the UK). No idea how Apple support works, and never needed to take a laptop or PC back to the manufacturer before (PC owner since 1995, messed around with other computers for about 10 years before that), so I'm a little disappointed that this "premium" laptop is faulty...I just hope they handle the situation well. -- Pete.
