    One thing that has us a little concerned about the new models is their quality control.
    A stripped screw near the subwoofer enclosure and an unlocked ZIF socket for the IR sensor should not be things found inside a completely unmolested computer with an $1800 base price.


    Isnt this horeible guys. Such and expensive Computer. And poor quality control.

    Also it seems Apple are using ay to much thermal paste, so the temps are high.

    That's what happens when apple chooses to manufacture mac's at foxconn labor camps.

    First, unless we see this in more than one mac, we can't rule out a simple one off. The manufacturing process is always rough for the first few weeks of production (as with any device small tweaks are made on the line to take care of them).

    Second, why do they not have some sort of automatic dispenser that does an exact amount for thermal paste. :confused:

    Agreed. I'm willing to bet very very few models have stripped screws. Also, the amount of thermal paste is variable per machine.

    I don't know anything about the ZIP.
