The one at The Grove was useable for a while but is now a piece of metal on a stand. Not a good feeling considering I am throwing 3k at it.

more like 4k when you add backpack, 512 more ram and 3 year warrantee.
I am not sure what the problem could be. I mean it is not like they have never put a G4 in a 1" thin case before. If anything I would expect fewer problems than the TI. I mean yes its thin but you have alot more width and depth. components are farther apart and have less of a problem with heat. Their are only 3 new things in the AI for crying out loud,
*built in bluetooth
everything else is an upgrade from the TI. one would asume that apple have improved performance / reliability on everthing from its knowledge of TI maintanence, I would expect the AI to be a more reliable machine than the TI. Then again what do I know?
My guess is that they must have gotten faulty components. Probably the 2Xsuperdrive is breaking so they are putting 1X's in them until they get a working 2X model.
