Let's take a look at two of Apple's most successful products, the company's portable music player and its notebook series."

Apple has quality issues

I only buy Apple hardware for personal use and for my company, and I agree that Apple is having some serious quality issues.

I think since I see about 10 Apple computers a month, I have a good representative data sample.

The real problem is it is not just Rev. A computers which have these quality

The 2.5 Ghz PowerMac chirps perpetually. The last gen 17" PowerBook has screen and fit issues. The Intel Mac mini has wireless and bluetooth issues.

And the MacBook is too hot and moos.

Obviously, I am a loyal and hard core Apple guy, so it pains me to discuss this.

But Apple has some serious quality issues going on, and it's obvious that some serious changes are needed.
