I’ll use a timeline to indicate events:
- Timeline -20 days: Order PowerBook.
- Day 1: Get new PowerBook
- Day 2-3: Enjoy excellent new laptop & get all my docs/settings transferred.
- Day 4: Find ethernet port not willing to accept any cables. Contact Applecare to arrange replacement.
Isn’t life great? I waited almost 3 weeks for this one to ship. I wonder how long its replacement will take. Not that I hold anything against Apple or the Apple store. The PowerBook is (was?) a great laptop, and I’d do it all over again, but its going to suck being without it after getting used to its vast superiority over the iBook.
Oh well, maybe one day..
