Hi everyone! I just joined the forum to learn more about the machines made by Apple. Still a PC user, I have absolutely no experience on a Mac, although hopefully that's going to change in the near future as I plan to replace my ageing IBM laptop with a Macbook. Here I'd like to raise my own question before I make the choice to change everything forever: The cons of Mac(books/Pro) It seems quite easy to find on the net about how Macs are vastly superior to their PC cousins. What I did feel difficult to find was the Mac's own problems. (or Things You'd Better Know before Switching to Macs) The only comprehensive list I've managed to come across is the one on Wikipedia, and by the looks of it, the known issues, especially the ones for MBPs, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbookpro) are quite daunting. And as such I'd really like to hear from users of these machines: has your machine suffered from any defects, and are they serious? By serious I mean something that cannot be fixed unless you have the machine serviced. The IBM thinkpad I am using has been working for 6 total years without any faults that requires its casing being opened, and I am just curious about the sturdiness of the Macs.
