First off, this thread doesn't belong on rescue at . Keep/move it to geeks,
Second off, you've stated your thoughts on the Emac several times and it's
getting a bit stale. If this is a work-up to your Wall Street Journal
piece, then frankly I pity the journalism world. So far you've got no hard
facts, all gossip, and you just sound like another pissy user who happened
to get a lemon. Oh well. Don't buy another one.

So take it back, get a refund.

8 people does not constitute a major problem in manufacturing.

Why should they replace them if only a simple repair would do? It's more
cost-conscious to repair than to replace. Simple economics tells you that.
Oh wait, you just write about the economy..you don't actually suffer from

Gee, you'd think the dumbass would buy a different computer if his

I seriously doubt they've blown anything. In my experience, Apple's been
great about replacing or repairing anything.
You said before that there is an apparent difference between Emacs made in
China vs. Wherever. Fine, perhaps it's a third party manufacturing issue
that can easily be remedied. For all you know it already has.

Oh real good. That'll do a hell of a lot of good for the economy and the
stock market. So your little bitchfest hits the Journal and the next thing
you know, the tech stocks slide even further due to more misinformation
and useless blather. Layoffs occur, people get thrown out of their homes
'cause they can't find another job...thanks a lot in advance, Mr.

Doubtful. Face it, you just happened to buy a lemon and now you're stuck
with it. So sorry.
Lastly, this is your *one* reminder to take this off rescue@ and move it
permanently to geeks at .
