I agree man.  I was crushed when I realized my mac wasn't perfect.  I am still holding on to some hope that I was just unlucky, but 3 computers with kernal panics is well on its way to a trend.

Trust me- lots of us have had our own issues with the Macbook, unfortunately. I hate Windows, but I think next time I get a new Mac notebook, it's going to be a MBP.

Oh, so if I get a MBP I'll avoid these problems?

fwiw, I haven't had any problems with my MBP.  And mine was literally one of the first off the assembly, since I pre-ordered it the day after Jobs announced the switch to the Intel chip.  It IS sad to hear of all of these macbook problems, tho.

I've had one random problem with my MBP, and from a little searching online, I was able to find that some others have this problem.  There doesn't seem to be a response from Apple about it.  I would say like one in every fifty times I close my laptop, instead of going to sleep, it restarts itself.  I can go for a month without it happening.  And then it happens like three times in a couple days.

Yeah, absolutely.

Alright, I have been around the apple forums a bit and it looks like a bunch of people are having this kernal panic problem.  Some people have said they think it is a glitch with the most recent OS X update.  If this is accurate, it should be cleared up by the next update, right?  So I have two options, try again with the macbook and live with the kernal panics for a while, or shell out the extra money for a MBP, because I am not going back to PC.  Any suggestions from the techies here?

You're sweet.

Aw.

PS I hope you are prepared for a phone call from Bouzie and me this weekend! We'll try to keep it early.

I'd say go with the MBP. I am!
