My Old MBP is Dead, thank God!

After about 4 and a half years of buying the first Intel Machine Apple ever produced, it has been destroyed by FlyingKiwi

This has been one of the worst machines I have ever owned, beaten only by the awful MacBook Air. It is the latest in a running streak of Apple Machines that leave my hands broken, only the Air broke that streak, but the Air was less than two years old! Months after getting the MBP the DVD reader broke, replaced under warranty, then the display broke... twice! replaced under warranty both times. The machine was always slow and buggy. Some things weren't fixed until Leopard appeared. The end life of the Machine was that the Display broke again out of warranty last year. My son was using it with an external monitor, when a machine at the office (a three year old white MacBook) started having problems with the Ethernet connection. In my office that's useless since I only allow the WiFi to access the internet, no internal devices, so no printing. I gave that office machine to my son and brought the MBP to my office with an external monitor. I noticed the DVD wasn't working again and one day the machine wouldn't turn on at all. I wanted to gutted it to get the disk out, but FlyingKiwi wanted to disassemble it completely, so the picture above is the end result of the machine and a good graphical representation of my feelings for Apple.
