In my head, Jason is suggesting not buying one of the new machines because he read about my problems, so maybe this is still bitter and annoyed:
However, I don't think that Apple should've released these new PowerBooks without more testing. I don't think I've done anything particularly esoteric so far, yet my experience has been less than stellar.
Don't get me wrong, when the new MacBook Pro works, it works very well. But for the amount of money I've spent, and the sacrifices I've been willing to make (e.g, not being able to run "mixed-mode" apps, like in the 68k-to-PowerPC transition days), I feel like things should work better.
