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.
