Mac crash

crashes & wipeouts

In the first place, which Powerbook. Sorry, but 30 months is a long time, in Powerbook land. Is it by any chance, the buggy-crashy. . . The first release of any new machine is dicey, especially one that reaches so high. None of this is free-or cheap. I've owned nothing but Powerbooks for 12 years, and every one of them has been a great leap forward. Titanium, itself, was maybe like a little too um, forward. Makes a great wifi-blocker, that case does-though in subsequent models the reception improved a bit. The new aluminum cases are tough and will last you-and also absolutely freezing to touch. I miss my bendy, soft TiBook. Nurse them along, and it does sound like you've got maintenance issues, do an archive'n'install (reinstall) - repair permissions first and after, or rue the day - and if you can go back to a Dell, then OS X hasn't really got hold of you yet. Or you hold of it.

Good luck!

Not sure

What's a buggy crashy? Remember, I'm not up on Mac technical terminology.

If 30 months is a long time for a PowerBook, methinks they need to rethink their hardware suppliers, especially at the prices they charge.
