    I've read a couple of posts about the problems Apple has w/ their Revision A Macs. What's this all about? How have they solved the problems before? I'm most interested in regards to the Macbook.

    No first product will ever be perfect. That's all they mean. First releases have problems that are fixed subsequently.

    Right, that's to be expected. But do the fixes come quickly and actually fix the problem, or just cause more frustration b/c they fix only half? I guess I'm worried about this new graphics chipset being a huge problem. After all, that was part of reason Montevina was delayed.

    The point of Rev. A problems is that sometimes there are Hardware issues that can't be fixed with something as simple as a Firmware patch.

    People usually wait 6 months or so until the next model is released.

    But it by no means don't buy an exciting new model because there might be something wrong with it.
