Well I have a 4 1/2 year old powerbook g4 which I just upgraded the hard drive about 3 weeks ago. But it seams that its great run is coming to the end. My battery life is now down to 41 minutes if that from what I was getting which was 1 hour 45 minutes. The power cord is like a life support line for it. Also after being dropped 3 times it still runs. But the monitor is starting to flicker different colors every once in a while. So I think I am just going to let it die. So I just hope that I get a new one for christmas. And also just say that apple make one of the best products I have ever used.

If you keep dropping computers Santa is going to bring you a bag of charcoal for Xmas! Be good and maybe he'll bring you a nice new MBP.

LOL thanks but I do not do it on purpose. 2 of them were because the charging cords was pulled that is why I can not wait to get a new one with the magna safe cord. I hope I get one I really do.
