New Apple Macbook Pro 15″ Fail (Computers, Rants)

I’m on my 4th Mac. I’ve had a Powerbook, a 2nd gen MBP, a 2nd gen mac mini, and now a new Unibody MBP. I received it yesterday, and I’ve been utterly disappointed. Visually it’s very pretty, and it’s extremely fast as well, but it’s got one little problem. The screen won’t stay up! This is really unacceptable, and I’m trying to send it back as I can’t use it like this. What a let down.

    My new MBP17 doesn’t fall until around 80-85 degrees. You gotta get it fixed or replace it.

    Ack, I’ve had mine for over a year and it still doesn’t do this!

    Of course, first thing I thought when I saw this was “I’m pretty sure they have medication for problems like this …”


    Hope you get it resolved. That bites.
