Start of my hate-hate relationship with Apple
It was the first Apple I ever owned. Everyone was telling me about how reliable, easy to use these things were (And no BSOD), and it was surely beautiful. I bought it along with a set of futuristic transparent speakers. I got it out of the box, and I loved it.
Then I made the mistake of switching the damn thing on. Vibrating desk, check. Stupid power-switch, check. No BSOD, check. It just froze solid after about 15 minutes use. I took it out of the case, and that improved things to the point it would manage 30 minutes.
I think it's still in the attic - I couldn't bring myself to throw this beautiful, useless, piece of junk away.
The cube had the advantage of revealing it's inadequacies more or less straight away.Every 3 or 4 years I fall again for the "Apple is reliable, easy" line, and buy something physically beautiful but useless for my needs, and throw it in the attic after a few months.
