    You wont believe how many calls I get about macbook pro problems. Its very common for the inverter to be fucked from the factory and it has a high pitched whine too. I hate that, atleast 3 a day with this problem.

    I always wanted an mbp, but I think it may be too new to jump in on it yet.I wish I could share all the information, but they havent been the most reliable machine thus far.

    ive had mine for about 2 weeks. i thank god every time i read a post like this, becasue i have been lucky enough not to have a lot of the problems people have complained about. REV A, though, so i'm waiting for crap to happen.

    regardless, I will definitely be buying an applecare warranty before this year is up.

    since there seems ot be apple staff in here.. are you guys aware of any overheating issues with the iBook G4? Does it even have a fan? My own just starts roasting after a hour of internet browsing.

    lol at yourself, idiot.

    apple's reach really does extend that far, and the fact you've posted where you work and what you do on OT, and THEN you post about a new product and issues related to it...you're begging to get fired.

    there are plenty of employees who browse OT, and not all of them do tier 1 tech support - some of them actually have the power to get you canned.

    as an apple employee, you should know better than to talk about these things on a public forum. i would highly recommend deleting this thread.

    :ugh: see thats being dishonest. If I ever worked for apple I'd be just like the OP and save some potential MB buyers a few bucks and headeaches, not tell them the MB is the shit and everything. And why the fuck do you care? You're not loosing money, and either is Apple.

    If they are that strict and dedicated into firing people like the OP, then I'd just use a proxy and not reval who I am and what I do, but I doubt it.

    if he wants to talk about how bad the macbook sucks or doesnt suck, that's his deal. when he posts
    he's speaking as an apple employee, and the rules (and his NDA) strictly forbid that. his first post in the mac shack was somemthing like "huh huh i work for apple and i have insider information just ask" :uh:

    no skin off my back :dunno:

    as with any new introduction into the technology field, it will have its problems. This is what comes with wanting to be the first to have something. This shouldn't be a measure of how much it sucks/doesn't suck because its still too new. Plus my buddy has one and hasn't found any issues yet.

    so lick nuts and leave.

    morality questions aside, it's not up to the little guy in the company how information gets disseminated to the public. what he is doing can (a) get him sued (apple has sued loose lipped employees--google for it) and (b) cost him his job...and getting fired from apple tends to carry across multiple jobs (i used to work there, too...i've heard many a story).

    The only issue I have with mine is that 90% of the aps I use run on Rosetta and this whole non-working flash plug in for Safari.
