hehe. thats horrible. Doesn't look like there's much to say about this subject. (well, maybe ill get different responses if i post this on a pc forum ) I was actually looking at the powerbook you have, Tyler. I can tell that you like it. Does the screen size bother you? Do you use an external (bigger) screen?

The screen size rarely bothers me. I bought this laptop because it's extremely portable...yet still amazingly powerful. At times though I do hook up my pc's monitor. Only because I have one...and I like working on projects, when I can, on a bigger screen. But if I didn't have another moinitor...I would be fine with the smaller screen. Also, I'm a pretty small guy (5'4 3/4"), so maybe smaller people don't have a problem with smaller screen size? I don't know. I think you could be very happy with the 12"......if not...the worst that wold happen is you would get the 15" instead

make sure you eject media be for you remove it
i blew the bluetooth unit pulling a FC reader!!!
but apple fixed it....
the only hassel i have it not splashing out on the 60 or 80g hd
40 an't enough
i'd have too say just don't be a tight ***
and you wont have a problem....

I'm small too. Almost the same hieght as you i definatly cannot afford the 15in. The only reason im considering the powerbook over the ibook is because i need a superdrive.
Wow sugarkane! That's definatly a bad quality! Were you in the 60 day warrenty, or did you get Apple care? Also, 40 is enough for me. Even 30 is enough for me. Thats not a problem

I don't understand what the insult would be? Enlighten me...I meant no harm, other than mocking myself and being fairly sinicle/sarcastic.
so, yeah...I was just saying that I have no problem with the screen size...other people have said it was too small for them.....and I figured I'd through in a little something about my size..and how..maybe small me = small computer = good...and maybe that doesn't work for everyone..who knows?

I love mine except it isn't as powerful as I thought it would be at times. I have 367 megs, which isn't a ton, but still should be fast. I does lag when opening programs like idvd, but I'm able to deal with it

My only problem with my powerbook is the wrist area getts fairly dirty cause of the material..... maybe I just have clammy wrist... who knows. But whipping it down often gets annoying. Other than that *knock on wood* no problems.

ahh well apple care and the warrenty are different
apple care means they have to listen too your stuidp questions
warrenty means that for the first year of owing your mac the have to fix any hardware problems that they can't blame on you!!!!
always play stupid with a warrenty issue, admit nothing!!!

I do believe he was talking about the blowing of blue tooth if you don't eject...that's a scary thing..but it works the same way on pc's doesn't it?

Sorry But There R A Few Things:
1. U Have To Splash Money To Enjoy All The Potential
2. If U Nhave Friends With Pc's Compatibility Can Be A Problem
3. Internet Explorer Causes Frequent Mishaps
4. The Greek Fonts On Ie Are Simply Horrible ( I'm Greek And Can't Read Any Grrek Sites, Now That Can Be A Real Pain In The A**)
5. Could Really Use A Right Click Function
Saying That, I Love My Pb, It's Just Soooo Soooo Cool!!
