So I broke down and decided to get a 15" MacBook Pro. I am turning my systems over more quickly than I used to so I decided to buy one now thinking that I would get a system that had all the bugs worked out. Yeah, right. When I checked I discovered my system was built five months ago. Uh oh I thought, wasn't there a battery recall on the 15" systems? Yep the battery is on the list. Yipee, I'm going to get brand new battery to replace the brand new battery in my brand new system. And now I'm prowling the net to try to figure out what, if anything, can be done about that blasted whine. So here I am with a new system I had presumed would have had all the bugs worked out of it, only to receive a buggy system. Ah well, you know what they say about the best laid plans.
