(Mac user since 1986)
So my slick-as-snot macbook just slipped out of my hand, dropped 1/5ft, and looks like it was wrapped around a telephone pole.
I used to love MacBooks/PowerBooks. They were tanks. The 1Ghz TiPB was a freaking TANK! Holy crap how many times that thing got dropped and kept ticking (not to mention being the fastest laptop for years). You didn't need magsafe (which is another failed tech based on how long those thing last).
Then Apple switched to Aluminum and claimed it was "stiffer". What a pack of LIES! It may as well be made of butter. I don't know what grade aluminum Apple uses, but at best it's 6000 series. 7050 wouldn't bend like melted butter.
Anyway, I'm done. These things aren't meant to be taken out of the bedroom. Paper mache is more durable. What a pity I have to switch operating systems because the hardware is a complete fail. At least I can get a 17" again.
WTF Apple? What happened to you? I used to be a fan of your industrial design. You suck.
