Hi MacHeadz Just bought myself an 12" 1.33 iBook, my first mac. And the first one I've used since working at a university department where OS 8 was the new thing. All the old crashing turned me in to a Windows-phile for a good few years. Nowadays all OSs are a lot better, and a iBook would do nicely as my second machine, the lowest spec being enough to enjoy the OS. The purchase was greatly helped by a mate with Edu discount, while on a trip to the US. A free iPod mini thrown in - fab!! So here I am, typing on a thing with the (according to posters here) reputation of up and down build quality. Here's my rundown of the imperfect things on the book's build. 1/ close lid to sleep, centre of lid looks more depressed in the centre by the latch. only a mm, but on a white box it shows. 2/ lid closed, rear edge near the hinge looks funny - left side has a gap between lid and base of 1 mm, the right about 3 mm. Reading around, this sounds quite common. Picture: [I can't seem to insert it in the post] 3/ Battery sticks out a bit. Sound like some here have sent the book back under warranty for these defects. I'm not too worried, but like everything, I'd like a perfect box too Would you send it back? More worryingly there's been a couple of glitches, i'm not sure if these are common [on XP this can be normal ]: 1. Set to sleep, AC plugged in. A day later, the fan is going crazy. Pick it up, unplug, open up, no sign of life. Power on, and reboots as normal, all is fine, fan dies down. But I could have lost stuff.... 2. wake from sleep, play some tunes for a minute. Stop playing, leave for a few minutes, it goes to sleep... but no flashing light. Close lid, open lid, no sign of life (fan normal). Power on and reboot. OK what happened here?? Only happened twice but is this the sign of things to come?? Should I hammer it with real intensive tasks soon to see if it breaks.? Use every bit of of hardware to test (like 56K, CDR, Eth) that so far hasn't been touched, I've only really used Safari (v impressive) and the tunes, and the dino game. Any good 'burnin-in' apps to try folks? Problem 2 may have been simply not enough battery - I've had it once where plugging in and it would awake fine. But what was going on with problem 1??
