Thread: Reports of MacBook Air Problems Spread

  1. #21
    Sounds like the same problem that they had with nvidia cards in there iBooks many years ago. Overheating. I would return for sure. Get out before you cannot get your money back and they say it is the motherboard and will cost $900 to fix

    The OS, in my opinion, has left me feeling like their is something lacking. Not because there is anything wrong with the OS itself, but because you hear such a hype about Mac VS Windows over and over and over. Now that I have been using it for a couple of days I know for sure that i will not be purchasing a Mac on the odd chance that Apple does come to their senses and lower their ridiculously overpriced machines. Other than it feeling more like a flavor of Linux I do not see what the fanfare is about.

    Apple should really check their QA program due to the fact that all of their new products are coming out flawed. Granted, this is nothing new to any company who produces products for the masses, but Apple wants to be known as a company with quality hardware. It simply isn't so anymore.

    EVERYTHING new in the tech world has bugs, even the great APPLE, yes we know they will fix it, and no this wont slow down sales or send people running, this is the norm when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    Is this not typical with an Apple device in the past 1 and half years...JOBS "lets release it pre-maturely just to cash in on the recent hype and growth of our company"... despite warnings by engineers and developers alike. I would not buy a piece of Apple hardware until it is on its second product cycle or it spells that same fate that this MacBook and Iphone 4 users faced...they are getting greedy and pushing too hard.

    I've had 2 kernel panics in 6 months. and those were secondary to some funky software I was trying to run.

    it's not normal, but is probably a bit more common during the "setting up" phase of ownership, when you're installing all the stuff you want and finding stuff to try out.

    but after that, it should not happen. at all. I haven't seen a panic since maybe July.

    Why is this under iPhone news?
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
