    this latch is really pissing me off
    the latch on my powerbook will not open all the way to catch the hook to hold the screen down.
    can i take this to the applestore and they can do something?
    i got the 3 year warranty and it started doing this a week after i got my pb.

    If you have the warranty, then you should beable to get it fixed or repalced at an apple center/store

    I think that latch is the biggest weakness in the PowerBook/iBook design. The hook, it's mounting, and even the catch are just too fragile and prone to sticking. Luckily, it's usually covered under warranty.

    Specs:
    Powerbook 17" 1.5GHz, 2GB, 160GB Momentus; iMac 24" 3.06GHz, 2GB; iPhone 2.5G 8GB; iPod 5G 60GB
    Having not had any problems with mine, I'd have said it's one of the biggest *strengths* of the Powerbook design. Because the hooks retract, you can't bust them off, as I've done with other laptops in the past. But I guess it's only good while it's working.

    Trust me, it's possible. I've done it twice, and know at least three other people who have.
