I somehow doubt it's Apple's fault that the LCD module from Chi-Mei optoelectronics, the LCD vendor used by most laptop manufacturers, stopped working?

but please explain why no laptop i've ever owned (read: 2 x dells) has ever even had a single problem and this stupid thing just keeps on being crap :P

actually once i had a slightly weird problem with the lcd on one (went a bit fuzzy sometimes) but thats it. so slight over exaggeration. still, gah :P

it also doesn't help that apple service centers suck. please to be doing of the onsite next day support :(

Actually, thinking about it some more, it could be the inverter (assuming you don't have one of the LED backlit macbooks). The inverter is an Apple component, but is to reference designs. The location of it next to the heat vents isn't a great idea on Apple's part vis-a-vis component lifespan.

Have any of you actually seen one of the full caskets in person, purchased one, or anything related.

Vista actually caused a problem more than once where I could not even get XP to boot up and run so had to install both of them again many times.

) It seems to me that OSX has currently got its act together infinitely more than Vista -- but even so, if I'd want to run XP, Vista, or even Linux on my Mac box, I could simultaneously run those and OSX using Parallels.
