All I hear is how relaible and stable macs are compared to PCs. I am in college and do a lot of work w/ Photoshop, dreamweaver, flash, and quark so I sold my IBM thinkpad and got a used powerbook G4 DVI 667 w/ 512 MB RAM on ebay. I have a home-built PC running a 3.4 GHz Pentium 4 w/ 1 GB RAM. I noticed that the speed when using the mentioned applications is actually pretty similar (desktop vs. G4) and it blows my old thinkpad out of the water. The airport reception is amazing compared to the PCMCIA card I had on the thinkpad and overall I really like the G4. However, it has been crashing all the time. I reformatted and reinstalled OS X 10.3 and have gotten all of the updates. Before, I had a problem where every time I put in a blank CD, it would crash. That problem has been fixed w/ the reformat, but now, it is crashing about 25% of the time when going into or coming out of sleep mode. What could be causing this? I could count all of the times that my home built PC has crashed on one hand (AKA, less than five times). This G4 has crashed more in the first week. The powerbook I bought has applecare through August. Does anyone know anything about this? Was there a recall on this logic board or anything? Should I send it into applecare? Also, the screen has 3 dead pixels on it and a bunch of fading from the keyboard I am guessing. Does apple care cover any of this? Any and all input is welcome/appreciated. Thanks!
