I am taking my iMac in for service(refer to my thread) and I am thinking of having them keep it. I prefer portables to my desktop, and I really miss having a nice laptop. With this machine and its problematicicity( my first made up word) I am thinking this is the better decision.

Rocketing through the sky!
the macbook is really nice, unless you get one like mine. I just got it back from servicing today (it was the 3rd time since i bought it back in June) and the logic board seems fubar'd again as the PRAM needs to be reset in order for it to work :mad:

given the track record for the macbook, you would probably have more problems with the macbook. Keep the imac, and if more problems occur, exchange it for a new one.

A lot of the 'major' problems with the MacBook are FUD. Go ahead and get one – they're nice machines.

FUD means Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. He's just saying that there's a cloud of mystery and bad rep around the macbook, most of it misplaced.
