I'm currently saving up to buy a consumer apple notebook (ibook G4/intel macbook?) for next fall. This may sound OCD-ish. But how good is Apple hardware quality-wise? I know they got their competition beat with OSX but after reading through these forums I've been going nuts about all these posts complaining about overheating, whining, DOA packages, things scratching easily, faulty logic boards (the first mac I ever got, the mac mini G4, had to have its logic board replaced the first day; but then again that probably had to do with the less-than reputable place I got it from) and the battery power capacity fading within a year or less on its notebooks. Is this a trend with all laptops or just Apple computers? I really get OCD-ish when it comes to the slightest hardware faults, major or cosmetic. Will an Apple computer (in addition to costing more initially) cost more to maintain over the years? I really want to get rid of this ThinkPad, but not if I can't get something as sturdy and durable. What do you guys think?
