It seems to me that there is an awfully high rate of various issues/bugs with apple hardware products. My first apple product was the MacBook c2d, purchased March of this year. My Macbook was plagued with the flickering LCD issue. I exchanged my 1st unit with a new one at the store and the problem still existed on the 2nd one. I ended up keeping it however.. Then my second Apple product was the dreaded W37 Ipod Touch. I ended up returning it. I'm holding my breath that my new Touch coming from Target will not have any issues.. but I wouldn't be surprised if it did.. These experiences with Apple has effectively conditioned me to be cautious of all Apple products in the future. I don't ever remember feeling this way about any electronics that I've purchased. Do others feel the same? Or do you see the Apple QC issues no different with other established name brands?
