As with any and every computer corporation there will always be lemon models, the truth is, the only reason it seems like there are so many people with lemons here is we are all devoted mac users who have come together in one place, many come here to get help for the problems they are having. Truth is, I bet less than 5-10 percent of all the new Intel Macs even have the "minor" glitches. Sure there have been recalls for the big issues, like discoloration and bad batteries, but I don't think it is as huge of an issue as many people make it out to be. Now before you start freaking out and saying WTF is up with this thebeephaha dude, take this into consideration. If your machine does have a problem you are entitled to have it fixed or replaced if you take the time to do something about it before your warranty is up. And yes, I know you expect that when your paying potentially several thousand dollars for a product you want it perfect. I do too, but theres perfect, and then theres being unreasonable. If Apple were to hand inspect every machine and nit-pick like we do, they would spend weeks just getting several hundred machines out of their factories. My MacBook Pro is not perfect, but then again, neither has ANY OTHER COMPUTER I have ever owned. My machine has weird warped spots in all the usual sections, above the superdrive slot, etc, etc. Does this really affect it's performance? Nope. My former PC computers have each had their quirks too. From eMachines, to Dell, to IBM, to meticulously researched parts for my custom builds, there has always been some little annoyance. Computers are not perfect, on occasion one will get a grade A specimen but, when something is mass produced, there is always a margin of error that is within "acceptable parameters". Anyways, I just thought I'd rant on peoples ranting about stuff wrong with their machines. I understand, my heart bleeds for you, but don't b*tch to us! Ask us for advice, but please, don't go on tangents saying Apple is total crap or your so mad you bought this or this. That kind of attitude is not going to get you anywhere. Peace, love, don't beat me, etc.
