    OK, the above post is supposed to have a hyper link, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I tried to fix it, sorry.

    Yikes, this doesn't sound good:

    [quote]When listening to some CDs, the optical SuperDrive labored unnaturally. I had intermittent problems syncing music on an iPod. Worst of all, after inserting a CD of Franz Schubert's The Trout, the iMac froze and I had to reboot. I could not then dislodge the CD, even after calling tech support.

    Apple tried to explain away the problem by saying I was testing a preproduction unit. True enough. But given that people sometimes screw up when they insert CDs, Apple missed out on one small but potentially important feature standard on many other machines: an accessible pinhole for manually ejecting a stuck disk. I had to take the computer to a nearby Apple retail store, where surgery was done and the disk was successfully extricated. It was not damaged and worked normally on an ordinary CD player.

    But I'm a glutton for punishment. I inserted it again. And it got stuck ? again. At least I'm one step ahead of Mr. Schubert: I completed my review. The composer's last symphony, sadly, went unfinished.<hr></blockquote>

    Well, he did say it was a pre-production model. But aside from that little stuck CD mishap he did give it very positive marks.

    Thanks murbot for fixing the link. I'm using OW 4.1sp... I wonder if that had anything to do with the hyperlink not working?
