    Hi!

    Just got a brand new mac book air 13". The older one I have was getting too hot while heavy work.

    I also bought a "new" PBG4 12" while on vacation in the US. The other two ppcs were getting dodgy and quirky. Too bad because I loved the HR model of the 15" powerbook. Maybe I will try to get it back in good shape in the future.

    So this pic was just now taken:

    1. Powerbook G4 15" 1.67 DLSD/HR 2005
    2. Macbook Air 13" 1.8Ghz 2009
    3. Powerbook G4 12" 1.33 Ghz
    4. Powerbook G4 15" 1Ghz (No screen but working)
    5. Macbook white 2Ghz
    6. MacBook Pro 13" 2.5Ghz 2011 (like new)
    7. MacBook Pro 17" 2.3Ggz 2006
    8. HP Something 16" 3.1Ghz i7 2014 (sorry not a mac)
    9. MacBook Air 13" i5 (new, still in plastic) 2014

    I'm seriously considering selling at least two items (I think I might have reached 250 posts by now)

    Now on with the unpacking!

    It may have been occurring due to degraded CPU thermal paste. I can't wait for the picture to be up.

    Is the picture working now?

    ----------

    mmm might have been, it is after all from 2009... I'm not sure if I should just sell it or apply thermal paste first. I mean, I have some paste left but It's a lot of work to get the CPU out. Done that with the PPC's

    ----------

    the 12" ? Yeah, it's pretty damn good, the battery lasts for hours on it :D

    ----------

    I'll test the new one and give you a review when I've had it for a few days :cool:

    The picture is working now! Sorry I misunderstood.. I was talking about the 15" when I realized it was a 12" you were talking about. My 12"s battery only lasts about a minute if I'm lucky, LOL!
