I used to say the same thing about my powerbook.  Give it a little 
longer.  My next portable will be the cheaper iBook.  My powerbook held 
up to heavy road warrior use for about a year.  Now the metal cover is 
pocked with dents, one small tear in the display casing, etc.  The 
combo drive only lasted a few months.  The keyboard is pretty flimsy 
too, especially if you have ever used anything like say an IBM Thinkpad
