    This thread is a question and a general complaint.

    Lets start with the complaint I baught a brand new ibook g4 about three weeks ago and I love. I have one issue with it THE SPEAKERS REALLLLLLLLY SUCK. Just terrible they are the worst speakers I have ever seen on a laptop and I think that apple should do somthing about it. I dont want to carry arround portable speakers but using the inbuilts in anything but a dead silence is about as effective as using my earbuds as speakers.

    Now the question, for some reason all the sound on my ibook switches to left I think it happens when I plug in my earbuds. I have to go into system preferences and change the sound back to center every time. Not a big deal just a little bit of a pain and kinda weird.

    I will second you on the speakers, they lick ballz.
    When I have my computer on the road I'm not using it as a music source so that isn't such a big deal. But I have the iBook sitting on my desk at most times. I have an iPod for music on the go. But as for the panning switching to the left I am not sure what is going on there. I've never heard of that happening. The sound in your headphones isn't coming from just the left side is it? Sounds like something is switching to Mono. Hmmm, odd.
