There were quite a lot of problems early on. Is it reasonable to assume that Apple has check ed the machines it's selling now for $899 and up for these problems? Or should one play it safe and put out $200 more for a new machine?
In my case speed really isn't the issue, I'm simply sick of PC land and am buying apple to have a nice stable, well-made machine to work on. Saving $200 would be really nice right now, but if there is anything more than a tiny risk of getting a lemon, I'd rather spend the money and buy a new one.
