Has a anyone that has a Titanium, have any paint issues? I have read that the paint will bubble and chip on the Titanium powerbooks.

Reason being, I am thinking about maybe getting a powerbook, but don't want the finish to get crazy on me.

Any other information regarding this, and just general powerbook info, likes/dislikes, etc, woudl be appreciated.

Thanks

I have a friend who has had his ti-book for almost a year and a half and the only problems he has had was a few scratches on the wrist pad area from his watch. I have only had mine for a couple of weeks so i cant tell you directly.

I have one of the 1b revision of the Ti powerbook. I say 1b because I have never had any of the problem except for the battery falling out. No problem with paint. There is a shiny spot on the track pad due to use.

I'm the proud new owner of a G4 1.42Ghz dual and a 23" Cinema Display. I've sort of fallen in to Apple like a young school boy for the prom queen.

I recently got the money saved to buy a 15" PB. So, here I am... doing the final research on the model before plunking down my hard earned cash... and I find this:

Arghhhhhhhh...
I hate the 12", and the 17" is too much.
Can anyone tell me if these are just exaggerated cases, or is this REALLY the way Apple makes their products.

well they definitely dont make them that way. i have only had mine for a few weeks but i would imagine those cases are of people who dont take the greatest of care with there laptops because that seems pretty hard to do.

Actually I belive the photo you have is of some of the older ones, they have improved the paint I do believe. I purchased mine over a year and a half ago and yes indeed mine looks like that. But it has been all over the world with me and been through every type of heat and humidity, etc etc. You can purchase the paint that is used on the tiBooks which I am thinking of doing. Sanding it down a bit, since I have bubbling, and then painting over. It's no big deal to me. I know a couple other people that have tiBooks also, but newer ones and they look beautiful and they've been all over also.. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Also, I have seen an ad for Silver paint made to repair chips in the TiBook. I don't remember who sells it but a quick google search will work.

Like any thing be careful. I have read only bad things about this company, including not receiving the product you ordered.

Any idea where else would provide the paint. Id like to get some as close to the paint with the original notebook paint. I have a few scratches on the wrist pad (from my watch), im considering repairing.

If you pay by credit card, you're protected.
That's why would put up with the Visas and MasterCards of the world.

If you don't receive the product, dispute the charge.
It's not that hard to do.

The credit card company is all to happy to look into it.

Hey. I own the first image. Can you PLEASE not directly link my image? Very rude.

Thanks.

Edited to remove quoting.

To the lady who was upset about me linking her images.

Here I am trying to draw attention to a problem you obviously have... And you get offended?
Hahahahahaha..

I hope your powerbook keeps chipping, you big baby.
You obviously wanted attention for your computer, and now that you have it - you... complain??
