I just bought a new MacBook last Monday. Exactly one week later it is right back where it came from. Why? Random Shutdown Syndrome. Read below:
I thought that because mine was manufactured in August it would be okay. I was wrong, it seems that the problem still exists. The second day I had it the thing shut down suddenly three times within an hour. Then on Saturday as I was explaining to the Apple guy about the problem at the shop it shut down. Perfect timing. The guy offered to give me a brand new one, I declined. But asked for a new iMac 20" instead. I’m still gonna stick with Mac, but would advise others wanting to buy a Mac notebook to be wary. Another problem I encountered was that the AC adpater became very hot and started to hiss. Maybe I just got lemon, but from what I have read on the net, about 20% of MacBooks have been in for repairs. That’s a very alarming number. Here’s some numbers.
