I have recently had a number of messages from users saying that i have never clearly expressed which issues I have had with my macbook. I think that I have, however, I am going to reiterate the story as clearly as possible Firstly I have used apple products for the last 10 years at least. I have had a an imac, emac, G5 tower, ibook (2) and now a macbook. I have been quite happy with them all except for the macbook. The ibook I loved, it was well built had zero problems and I loved the keyboard. Now in regards to the macbook: I bought it approximately 8-9 months ago and immediately I was annoyed by the design of the keyboard which I am much much slower typing on, not to mention less accurate. I didn't give up though I thought that will some practice I would get used to it, however, it dawned on me 3 months on that I hadn't' become used to it at all and it was just as cumbersome as ever. I do understand that the keyboard is subjective but I have talked to a number of people who don't like it either so it isn't just me. My next issue which has been beat to death here already is the sharp edge on the front of the keyboard, but that's as far as I'm going to go with that at the moment. Durability issue's have also reared their ugly head. My trackpad, keyboard and palm rests are worn completely smooth, which is shocking in only 8 months. I also have the famous discoloring palm rests to make matters worse. My next problem occured in the form of a broken screen. I always keep it in a case for transport however that seemed to not be enough and a broken LSD was what I was left with even though it was hardly thrown around. After checking with apple I learned that a new screan would cost almost as much as a new macbook and in light of all the other issues I was close to just selling it. After searching a bit I found a place on the internet that offered a new screen for under 250 dollars so I ordered it and installed it myself. I was further disgusted when I went to install the new screen by the poor quality of the macbook on the inside.. for example the screen bezel is held on with cheap plastic clips that break and then cost an absolute arm and a leg from apple to replace. Some less serious issues on top of all these have been keys that feel like they are coming loose, scratches everywhere (even though it's always kept in a case) and cracking of the keyboard. I expect this post to create some anger in the die hard mac fans of this forum, but please remember that the reason that I write this is because I have been accused of constantly complaining but never stating why. Obviously the later issues I have not consulted apple about as changing my screen myself voided my warrenty.
