Missing my baby

No, not that one. My brand new Powerbook’s screen hinge is loose. If I try to prop it on my knees in bed, it flops closed. However, I read this forum post that Apple will replace the hinge under warranty. I phoned the AppleCare line, and they suggested that if I take it to my local Apple Authorized repair center that they’d be able to fix it there or send it back if they can’t. So I did, and they said they’d have to order the hinge/clutch assembly and I probably won’t get it back until Tuesday at the earliest.

Even worse is that I’d just finished wiping and restoring my old Powerbook to give it to Laura.

I guess there goes my plan to do some billable hours on it this weekend.
