this was originally posted on this board before the server switch and i am reposting it here again with, what i feel is, a better subject wording:

i own, since march 24, 2001, a G4 powerbook which suffers from many of the known defects discussed here and on other boards....

i am curious as to how many others are in a similar situation?

perhaps if you, too, have a G4 with the known flaws and design faults:
battery operation failure when book is 'moved'
unsightly keyboard impressions on screen
cd/dvd noise, function, non-ejection failure
faulty connection for power supply
difficulty in dealing with apple customer service
long turn around time for repairs of these issues
squeezable case above cd/dvd after repair
smell of solvent when cd/dvd is used continually after repair

you will be interested to write in here..

i have been discussing with several other G4 owners, doing something as a group to make apple more aware of its responsibilities to us and its other loyal customers....

perhaps if we band together we will make our position stronger.....and get the folks in cupertino to do t he right thing...

thanks for your time in reading this and hopefully for your response here.....

i believe there are many others who bought G4 powerbbooks that are faulty because of their design or manufacture as was mine..
we, the customers, surely did not break them...
