    OMG - what were you thinking!? I am sorry for your loss. May your powerbook RIP.

    Check and see if you Homeowners Insurance well pay for a replacement.

    man. my powerbook doesn't get all that hot. as hot as I'd expect it to. no where near fire hot. no where near cooking on it hot. No where near uncomfortalbe hot. it just gets nice and warm....like a blancket...and that's after long use....catching fire to it is impressive, but I'm glad your taken care of with insurance....i don't know if I'd be...but I'd go to apple and say it just burst into flame...they can't say it didn't...and I would laugh when I hung up the phone....alright...I'm gonna go now...good luck getting everything fixed and what not...

    This was the funniest thread I've seen in a looong time. Thanks for the laughs. But seriously, I hope the insurance willl cover the replacement. Btw, did you back-up your data?
