Wed, 09/27/2006 - 08:36 -- rprice

Dave Winer has been complaining for weeks about his new MacBook randomly shutting down. Leo, Merlin, Alex and the gang over at MacBreak Weekly have been talking about mooing. Apparently the MacBook Pro doesn't have these problems. I'm glad I spent the extra dough.
