what city are you in?
This was in Norman, OK, although I have heard from people all over the country who've been scammed. That wikipedia article has the goods....quite an involved scam. I ended up selling mine to a co-worker for $50....he was quite happy. :D

I think the MC303 was my second worst gear purchase. I know some people just rock out on them, but I failed to get anything even remotely pleasing going on. Fail!

Dude. So wrong. Build quality is just fine on a MacBook, and the processors are a nearly identical spec to the MBP, lol.

I'm genuinely surprised. I popped an extra gig of RAM in mine and now I spend my days chuckling at MBP owners for having spent the extra cash on things they'll never use when they could have had more or less the same for a shed load less cash.

:D

hmm, but the mediocre built quality is true. All three macbook owners among my friends have this crack in the plastic at the front of their machine. I thought mine wouldn't have this, but now, after one year and half, it's cracking as well.

tbh, yes, that's true. I am missing bits of plastic from the front. But as far as performance goes, no complaints from me.
