MacBook Pro - No Luck...

Posted by dom on Thu Feb 23 22:29:35 +0100 2006

My MacBook Pro arrived today – after all the sweat of moving my 90 GB from my old Titanium PowerBook G4 800. Did I mention I have no luck with apple machines? I think I did. Sad me – this time is no different:

My right speaker seems be broken – the left one is fine and good sounding – the right one distorted as if totally over powered or connected cross over. oh. that just might be the case. Has anyone the same issue? I bet – here is a thread in the support forum: Problem with built-inspeakers – sad sad thing. Nice remote for iTunes listening and movie watching, but awful sound.

Oh and a sidenote – when wanting to transfer my account via the “normal” way, instead of using ditto on the users home directory, this is what showed:

Yes, Mac OS X is thinking I got 9802631.3 GB on my TiBook…

P.S.: I also had my first kernel panic – yes – although maybe it was not wise to play world of warcraft to calibrate the power manager – when the battery hit zero, the machine paniced.

  1. When I bought my PowerBook a while back I, and many other’s I found online, had the same problem. It happens. They will fix it if you mail it back, but it sucks to get rid of it immediately.

  2. Perhaps this is related to the speaker issue. Showed up in NNW today…
