不過Apple本身真係要檢討下，其實我以前部15″ LED MacBook Pro都有類似問題，只不過因為跌過CASE死都話係我人為，今次冇咁笨！
或者有人會以為我身為IT人會有幾台電腦，其實我還稱得上是個環保份子，我想在IT界生存而像我一樣只擁有一台電腦的應該不多吧。對很多人來說一台desktop加一台notebook再加一台netbook是必然的，我自己還是覺得何苦要花時間將文檔抄來抄去呢？其實手頭裡唯一的2.4GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro我也很滿意，在這三年裡不眠不休，可謂盡忠職守，也許如果要出門還得靠它一段時間。
As all you know Apple announced so many cool new products. New design plastic unibody white MacBook, upgraded Mac mini, Mac mini server and multi-touch Magic Mouse.
What I’m thinking is what’s the best deal after this announcement. Surely for students and for budget users the MacBook is the best deal. You don’t need to wait, order it now! For me, my 2.4G 15″ MacBook Pro is running smooth and fast. Still not urgent to replace it with any unibody MacBook Pro, I wonder even the coming year, I may not need to replace it, though it will be 3 year-old.
On the other hand, the new iMac especially the 27 inch model seems a very tempting model. Not just a little upgrade. Where can you find such a beautiful all-in-one desktop with a 2560×1440 display in the market? And one amazing feature that I complained before – the 27″ display allows you to use as display for other Mac!! That means the display port is both input and output! It’s excellent to use it as my Mac mini’s display also!! And more, the Intel i5 and i7 quad-core CPU option, it will be very powerful for video editing! More! bundled with wireless keyboard and new Magic mouse (you need to spend extra HK$1000 more for these before!)
I still remember the video advertisement on the bus this morning saying Lenovo all-in-one PC is the best seller… OMG, it’s too far to compete with iMac, sorry!
It’s my Mac again being fixed. According to my memory, all Macs I owned got motherboard problem.
1. 1st generation 20″ G5 iMac got capacitor and power supply burning problem which Apple offered extensive repairing program. iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for
Power Supply Issues
2. Last generation G4 PowerBook suffered from logic board problem, memory slot would be out of order after some days, PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz) Memory Slot Repair Extension Program . My serial no. wasn’t mentioned in the repair program. But hopefully I got purchase insurance from a chain store, so that I can claim the money (> HK$6k!!) and sell the machine finally. Also involved 4-5 times turned around because the service didn’t connect power LED, speakers, bluetooth properly… Well, the service centre named “BAD” was closed I found, Hallelujah!
3. My current 15″ Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro got Nvidia GPU overheat problem, MacBook Pro: Distorted video or no video issues. Actually I’ve asked AppleCare to replace the logic board. But after the service, seems
I saw the status checking site, they’re ordering spare parts for it. I wonder they have to replace the motherboard once again.
4. I hope no more… especially for my Mac mini which my girl friend is using. So far so good.
Though I still think Mac gave me less problem than PC so far, I’m really a lucky “honored” user, making good use of AppleCare. It’s hard to say whether AppleCare saved me from these, since all the cases are claimed by Apple it will have after warranty replacement. Except once before they replaced my MBP’s battery after 1 year of use.
