Originally posted by filmmaker2002Wow, look at us. What other computer purchaser do we know of that inspects their products so thoroughly. None that I know of. I'm not saying we should be overly picky...but I wouldn't worry about the "sqeaky" casing over the SD. White spots are one thing...but let's not take it to extremes...
Speak for yourself. For a $2599 computer, you're mother****ing right I'm going to be "inspecting" it closely and, to be completely honest, expecting a bit MORE than your average, piece-of-shit 8lb. PC laptop.
Believe me...I'd be a little more cavalier if it was a $1099 iBook.
There is something very wrong at play here in the production of these new 15" (the fact that this thread has so many responses and views and stories shared attests to that.
Also, I don't think I'm alone hen I say that the long, painful wait for these things to appear (we knew they were coming because the 12" and the 17" pointed the way, right?) only makes all this sting a bit harder to some because you wait and wait and wait and then get a TOTALLY
ed up hunk of aluminum for $2599.
I'm not rich. I saved my head off and so did others, I'm sure. I ate more macaroni and Ramen the past few months than I care to remember so I could purchase one of these awesome machines.
I'll wait and see what happens. If being a tad deflated that a $2599 purchase pooches in and out and squeaks like a monkey on a treadmill makes me unrealistic or an idiot, then an unrealistic idiot I'll be.
BUT I am glad to have a - so far - nice screen and latch, so I 'm ahead on that count.
