I have compiled a list of problems I have experienced with this computer since I got it. I'm out of school now so I finally have time to do something about it. Would you guys recommend going to an Apple Store with this list or calling them on the phone? Display flickers rapidly at low brightness (1-2 bars). Display flickers black intermittently. It happens on both graphics cards. Reinstall of Mac OS X 10.6 did not fix the problem. Activity Monitor showed ~40% CPU usage constantly, but sum of CPU usage for all processes listed did not add up to 40%. Issue continued after a reboot and also after one reinstall of Max OS X 10.6 Issue stopped after the second reinstall. Function keys have stopped functioning multiple times after coming back from sleep mode. A reboot is required for the function keys to respond. Temperature has reached 105°C when rendering HD video. Trackpad does not respond intermittently. Strange click noise when tapping lower right of the trackpad. Tension screw is loose? Keyboard is not recessed properly and imprints on the display when the laptop is closed. Eternal spinning beachball on login. Disk utility gave a sibling link error. Had to reinstall Mac OS X 10.6 once again in order to use computer. Battery cannot maintain a charge. Status light on charger does not light up sometimes. DVD drive is incapable of burning Dual-Layer DVDs (multiple brands were tested). DVD drive is incapable of closing sessions when burning some DVDs. The computer was left to work for 3 hours and the burn process never finished. DVD drive is incapable of reading some purchased DVDs. These were not home videos, these were DVDs purchased at Best Buy. DVD drive refuses to eject DVDs it cannot read until reboot. Wireless networking dropouts occur often. All other networking devices on the network function properly. Permissions repair and SMC/PRAM reset were performed multiple times.
