I finally got my 12" powerbook in the mail. Its a bit rough, but nothing more than I was expecting. First, the battery holds about 30% of its original capacity. Not bad for 523 cycles. The RAM is maxxed already and it has an AirPort card. I've already stripped it down to replace the CD drive (more on that). Now I'd like to discuss issues. First, the case looks pretty bent, and beat up in the corners. I can work on that. Next, the DVD drive keeps acting like its trying to read something (there is nothing in it) and it makes the 'reading' noise over and over. The drive was working, pulled out of a 17" PowerBook. It also wont physically allow DVDs to enter the slot. I have no idea what might be causing that. I'd like to ask more questions, but for now, I'd like to resolve the CD/DVD issue.
