  • Guys, can you change the refresh rate on a new 15" Powerbook at all? And if not, what is it set at "at the factory"?
  • Placebo, does Studio MX 2004 work well with .mac? I had a "professional" company try and do a site for me..and they are absolutely terrible. Horrible actually! I won't mention the name unless someone asks........then I'll gladly give it out! Thanks…
  • k_munic Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate it! "macromedias contribute" - are there any examples of websites with this content........? Is your own .mac site optimized with this? Any other tips/suggestions I'm all ears!
  • Actually, some of them are in my bookmarks...but others such as "1800flowers" and "xinet" (whatever that is)...etc...I DO NOT bookmark or visit????? I have no idea how to get rid of that "list" that shows up! Any ideas? Thanks for the responses …
  • I bought my 1.25 Ghz 15" laptop on Sept 29th from a local dealer. I was originally going to go thru the "Apple Store" but the wait was driving me nuts...anyways, got it home and I remember posting here that "no latch issue..no dead pixels.etc..." …
  • Call me naive...I thought it would be a lot easier! But, Placebo's step's seem easy enough, I'll try that and if that doesn't work, then Leonis's "put into fire"...haha... Thanks for the help.........
  • So......you can't "copy" a DVD that you bought personally to make a back-up? And utilities that anyone can suggest? Any help........
  • Well, not for me! I called the Apple Store in Canada and the 1st lady I spoke with said flat out "no" - new AL buyers don't qualify. I then asked for her supervisor and was put on hold for a few minutes (while she explained the situation to her boss…
  • How do you check the font smoothing settings? Sorry for the ? Thanks!
  • What about a screen protector? Anyone here who owns a powerbook have some kind of cloth "thingy" to protect the screen from the keys?????
  • "OK"....sleep it is! Fedex just dropped off my new 15" Brenthaven carrying case. It was a tight fit, but it's definately well protected in it. Thanks for the responses! Great forum!
  • Yesterday I posted that after I initially checked out my new 1.25Ghz 15" model that there were no problems....wrong! I knew I jinxed myself! The latch worked fine (the 1st time). Then went I went to work, I tried to close it and guess what? It j…
  • Well, just got this baby up and running and man is it ever sweet! I had to call tech support because I couldnèt connect to the internet 1st try but the kind lady walked me through it with no problem at all! Tech support is great! Anyways, no de…
  • Hey Guys,....I appreciate the debate of the pro's and con's of each product. I'm still waiting for my new 12" stock powerbook...my email from Apple says "it should ship on or before October 10th"...yikes... My point is that I have some time to do so…
  • Right now, I'm leaning towards "nisus writer express". Reasonably priced, "word" compatible, and the interface seems quite good. Most reviews on the net favor it.... I don't want "microsoft" anything on my new baby... Anyone else use Nisus write…
  • I don't know why but I'm considering upgrading to the 15" 1.25 Ghz model (with Combo and 60 Gd Hd)...it's "only" $800 more and I get sooooo much more. lol. I don't know if you can change your order once you place it.. Anyone know if you can? I'd sti…
  • staphbaby.....the laptop love is good. I played with the 15" 1ghz model which was ok...but I really want to see the 12" to see how it compares. Another week to 10 days wait apparantly??? So tempted to buy the 15" though...what a nice machine!
  • Dave...Since our local Mac. dealers here in Vancouver don't have any 12" powerbooks for me to look at, I'm wondering the same thing. I took a 15" 1Ghz model for a test run and it looks fantastic (the screen..and the whole thing!). Wondering what oth…
  • David..how do you like your 12" powerbook? Is the screen quality as good as the 15"? How about playing DVD's? Good quality too? Any advice or "I wish I would've bought XXX" would be appreciated!! Thanks!
  • I'm still trying to figure out if I should get the 12" or 15" powerbook. I went to my local Apple dealer and they only had the 15" and 17" models in. I played around with the 1Ghz 15", played a DVD on it etc..and the drool factor was VERY high! Un…
