Mac dies (again).

Last summer my two Powerbooks had their hard drives die within six weeks of each other. Now it looks like the 17" has given up the ghost again, already. This is the machine that I got fixed by that guy out in the avenues; I didn't really trust hiim at the time, so this tends to confirm my prejudice. Anyway, I guess I will take it to the PowerBook Guy downtown, who definitely knows what he's doing and is recommended by the folks at the Apple Store.

My next computer will probably be a Compaq. My *first* laptop was a Compaq Presario, vintage 1999 ... and it still runs!
