Hi guys. If you own a 17" Santa Rosa MacBook Pro with 10.4.10 and AirPort Update 2007-004 installed, I could really use your feedback on a little test I'd like to ask you to perform. Here's the test: Unplug the laptop so that it's running on battery power only. Be sure that AirPort is turned on and connected to a wireless network. Using a USB microphone and some recording software (such as Audio Hijack Pro, Soundbooth CS3, whatever), first do a short recording (say about 60 seconds) of you speaking in the left-side USB port that is farthest away from the power connector. This recording should be clean audio. No static, no pops, no nothing bad. Now, unplug the mic and plug it into the OTHER left-side USB port. Do another voice recording of about the same length. Then, repeat this with the right-side USB port. Question: Are either (or both) of these last two recordings filled with pops and static? If so, turn AirPort off and try again on either of the two bad ports. Clean audio? Then turn AirPort back on and do another recording right away on one of the bad ports. Clean audio. Do yet another recording, I'm betting it's dirty audio. My hope is that you'll hear clean audio on all three ports each time. Your feedback could help determine if I'm due a replacement laptop. Thanks.
