Glad I didn't decide to go with a laptop when I was shopping for a new desktop in March
Seriously though, I'm sure apple will fix the problem pretty quickly since they are known for their service. I do agree that their commercials do sort of over exaggerate on the PC side, but they are still fun to watch

This is bad but it could be worse, like dell.

Sony knew about the problem for ages and ages.

That's why it only affects a certain batch made between certain dates... because Sony discovered the problem and stopped production. The reason they sat on it until now was because they could save money by waiting until people complained, rather than force a full, immediate recall.

Now that they're paying out a bucketload to everybody... if the PS3 fails then Sony are on the Bankrupt Express if you ask me. Too big for their boots with nothing to show for it.
