In the News "Some buyers of Apple's new MacBook notebook are hopping mad about random restarts and heat problems that don't fit with Apple's image. Still, Dell might be happy to have Apple's current problem and a bit of its banked reputation. How long can a solid-gold brand take a beating and keep on ticking? Apple Computer will find out this quarter with the growing list of user complaints about its recently released MacBook notebook model randomly shutting down."

I agree. I got my MacBook three months ago after two Dell and one HP Compaq notebooks (I dual booted Windows and Redhat/Fedora Core Linux on all three). I never had any hardware issues with Dells (they are still in function) while HP Compaq died terminally (display and RAM) after a year and a half. So far I haven't had any issues with my MacBook, and in terms of user experience (I am an advanced user) it is by far the best computer I have ever had. As a result of this experience, I have decided to soon replace my aging home Dell desktop (also no problems whatsoever in four and a half years) with a Mac Pro.
