Re: The MacBook Report
Although not quite used daily, I have an iMacDV400 from '99. For the most part, I use it to record simple demos, run PT's Free on OS 9.2. If my gf's computer isn't around, I will use it for internet, but it's painfully slow as most browsers for OS 9 can't handle a good portrion of Web 2.0 content. Starts up perfect every time.
The gf's MacBook, (on which I'm writing now), who is a couple years old now has had a couple hiccups - battery has overheated a couple times which triggers an auto shut-off, started back up fine after it cooled down, though.
I'll happily pay twice as much for a Mac that will last 4 times as long.
