    No problems here! I suppose one or two of my f-keys are ever so slightly slanted, but I have to look at it very closely and at the right angle to notice...so even if that's the case, I couldn't care less. They work perfectly and unless you're looking for it, you won't notice. I haven't experienced any of the other issues people have been discussing.

    Who's going to start a poll "are there too many polls about the same issue?"

    Can we have a bitch and moan and whine section of this forum so that people who come here for news and help don't get constantly bombarded by "OMG, the rubber feet on my new over priced MB don't stick to my desk, Apple's QC sux, they can't make anything that works right. It should be perfect for what I paid!!!"
    :rolleyes:

    Funny how people start polls, then disappear when the results don't support their assumptions.

    The fit and finish on mine is perfect.

    It operates as advertised; so, all is good.

    Obviously, we are living in different time zone. I am in GMT+8, if you know where I am ;)


    I don't think the result don't support my assumptions. Look at the percentage up to now. Basic maths (even common sense) tells you that Apple is not doing a good job!

    BTW, some people in this forum remind me what is a "die hard fans" of Apple! I am not picking bones, but telling the fact that some people are suffering from the poor quality control of these new Macbooks!

    May be you are lucky, because you can easily take your defective Macbook for refund, exchange or repair! But some people like me, we don't have refund, and exchange policy here! What you can do is send your Macbook back for repair!

    Think about the feeling of buying a new Macbook today and you have to send it back tomorrow !!

    Can you name one computer manufacturer that builds notebooks with a higher quality than Apple??? After owning one of these new MacBooks it makes every other notebook feel like a hunk of garbage. Every manufacturer is going to have it's defects. Get over it.

    Have you used Sony TT series before?

    How about Fujitsu Lifebook series?

    Do you miss the good old IBM?

    If you are talking about quality, Apple is far behind of Sony, Fujitsu and also good old IBM.

    PS: Don't be childish and tell me something like ......... if you like the others, you can switch to Sony, Fuitsu or IBM. I have them all and am qalified to give my opinions ;)

    I couldnt answer in your poll, it is all one or the other. Nothing in between. I have a few problems, but they are nothing that even remotely bother me. I macbook performs as expected. Better than my black macbook.

    Extremists suck.

    Some people can live with problems more than the others. If you are married, you will understand what I mean :D

    What I am trying to prove is, these new Macbooks are poor quality controlled. At least the quality is far lower than we can accept! This is the problem of the manufacturer and the quality can be improved. If they can accept the fact that they have problems than they will do something to improve it.

    I am telling the fact. Nothing personal.

    The fact that they run Windoze kills any sort of quality that they had going for them...

    You are missing the points. We are talking about quality of notebooks, not OS ;)
