Well, I just thought that I'd post something that echos the dissatisfaction that I am feeling with my computer.
I am the owner of a 1.0GHz PowerBook G4 17"
this machine has been nothing but trouble for me.
I have lost count of the number of trips that this machine has made to texas, but if there were frequent flier miles, I could fly first class to tokyo, going east!
Its possible that I recieved a lemon, and that it just came bad from the factory, but that doesnt make it any better.
Apple's support needs some improvement. For one, they need to run three shifts through for regular people, instead of just their server clients. I could understand if they pushed server clients to the head of the queue, but they should at least offer support to the majority that spend thousands of dollars on their computers.
I just thought that I'd vent some of the anger that I am feeling now, since my machine died AGAIN. As I said earlier, I have lost count of the times that it has been returned to apple. I will have to look at the paperwork I have filed away to see the exact number, but I'm sure it's quite far up there.
This time round, I am going to demand a replacement, or a refund.
Let this be a lesson to all of you. Don't buy revision A products, wait a little while for them to get the bugs worked out of the system. I bought this powerbook just before they released the rev. 2 model. I have been kicking myself ever since.
