    chron·ic P Pronunciation Key (krnk)
    adj.
    1. Of long duration; continuing: chronic money problems.
    2. Lasting for a long period of time or marked by frequent recurrence, as certain diseases: chronic colitis.
    3. Subject to a habit or pattern of behavior for a long time: a chronic liar.

    I think it's funny how potheads (not saying it's you) use the term "chronic" to describe pot. The term means "of long duration", "continuing", "frequent recurrance"; and is most often used to describe *negative* effects. And then in the next sentence they can spew some bullshit about it not being addictive :rolleyes:

    that finish is just matte painted plastic, heavy use rubs it off clean or dirty. my ibook finish rubbed off where my palms touch, but i agree with you. its not apples fault that someone uses their laptop for several hours a day every day.

    I've used my powerbook every day since I got it back in October, and have had no problems. Then again, I clean my powerbook at least once a week so it won't get dirty. I'm willing to bet these are the same people with funk built up on their desktop keyboards as well.

    So you guys are saying that if you wash your hands, this won't happen? Those guys seem to think that the heat from the hands reacts with the plastic somehow :dunno: I really don't think they are all "Dirty" :hsugh:

    Aren't iBooks clear plastic that are painted white on the inside, just like all iPods? If that's the case, there is no finish to rub off.

    so then, underneath the finish, the plastic is just plain yellow? No wonder nobody could "clean" it off.

    what the fuck were they thinking @ Apple :ugh:
