Thanks for the post David; interesting point you make about the overheating. I've been wondering about that with regards to the new iMac as well - it's one of their recent decisions that I strongly disagree with, since, unlike portable devices, there is no end-user benefit to the thinness of the device.

I think one thing to keep in mind when we run into outstanding or terrible experiences is that the plural of anecdote is not data. Let's hope that your lemon is just one poor data point.

Cheers!

Unfortunately the statistics that I cited in my article clearly demonstrate Apple is no longer the most reliable computer.

And that is the bigger problem than my one iLemon.

Fair enough! I too have had issues with my Macbook, and am seriously considering whether this is the end of the line for me and Apple products. The ONLY thing keeping me right now is the magnetic connector. If another company made a decently specced and priced computer with a Magsafe connector, I too would jump.

Likely Apple has it patented and would sue the pants off any manufacturer trying to use it.
