Mac OS X How this passed through Apple's Mountain Lion testing is beyond me. "If one edits a document, then chooses Save As, then BOTH the edited original document and the copy are saved, thus not only saving a new copy, but silently saving the original with the same changes, thus overwriting the original." Just goes to show: do not mess with my ability to save my stuff. There is no one-size-fits-all for this kind of delicate stuff.

Heh, I live in a weird country where Apple laptops can have the same problems as others, including clogged up fans and overheating, random resets, failing motherboard power lines, keyboards, and wireless chips...

Most likely, we are holding them wrong.

To be fair, I got a Macbook the same time as I got my last Dell work laptop. Guess which one is still working and has enough charge in the battery to last over 2 hours? Not the Dell. The Dell travelled a little, but mostly got left on a desk. I think Nvidia was the real culprit, but it's pretty much a relic of the "parts" cupboard now, along with a similar model that was about 6 months older.
