Apple A few days ago we reported on heat issues with Apple's MacBook Pro. As SomethingAwful.com has found out, the issue is related to Apple making errors in applying the thermal paste on various locations in the MacBook Pro. SomethingAwful also gives a DIY fixing guide. Apple, however, was not amused, and sent out a cease and desist letter to SomethingAwful, asking them to remove the link to the MacBook Pro's service manual. Apple is also addressing battery issues.

I have the last model 15" Powerbook (the high-res model) and I have not had any of the problems some users were reporting such as splotches/lines on screen, weak battery, audio feedback, bad lower ram slot, etc...and my serial # is in the middle of the group of people who were reporting problems.

what does this mean? I have no idea, but mine is working flawlessly.


It means that your powerbook is probably assembled by another person.
