Hey guys, my MBP 2.4 just crashed on me this afternoon at the library after multiple trips to the apple store since I bought it back in September. Well I needed a computer right now and asked my parents to spot me the cash and tried to get the 1.6 but Apple here in Houston was sold out, so I ended up getting the 1.8 as my PHD program present so I can't complain. I am wanting to do all that I can to avoid the problems I had on the 2.4 which hopefully apple will just now replace and ill have it like new to sell to get an iMac in its place as I now have the portable air. I just hooked it into the wall and have yet to start to up here in my office, other than the reinstalling OSX without the languages and printer drivers what can I do upfront to optimize its performance and longevity? I have read something about PRAM resetting (may have the term wrong sorry if I do) something with Shift+option+command+p key while it is shut down if I remember reading it earlier correctly. Is there anyting else before I start her up and try this remote dvd read from this AMD I have at the office? Thanks for you help and recommendations and I do apologize for any repetitive threads, likesay am reading those as you read this.
