EDIT: You should've sent it back when you saw the hinges broken. You should also complain about that
Are you talking about the current one? I raised it with Apple, think I may have gone to the store as well. If you're talking about #3 that did go back. Just thinking how fitting it is that I named the computer Gambit

Didn't you already make a thread about this just a couple of weeks ago? I think the problems you've had put you in the extreme minority. My Macbook Pro is the most reliable (both in software and hardware) laptop I've ever had. I got it two years ago and it still feels like it's brand new. Most of my other laptops needed replacing after two years because Windows had slowed to a crawl and they were falling apart basically.
Also, I don't even know what a "kernel panic" is. It's never crashed.
Yes I did. Wouldn't be hearing from me again if it hadn't reoccurred. My experience seems to always be the opposite of what others experience. Windows Vista? Ran perfectly fine over here. 1 error in the 5 or 6 years that computer was in use. Virus eventually completely destroyed it (bad torrent)
Dell? They were terrible. Never again
Packard Bell? That thing soldiered on, ran into a number of issues that it always recovered from on its own and then all the issues just stopped. On the whole reliable, but eventually age took it down. The original desktop Packard Bell desktop we had, that thing refused to die even though it was going the computer equivalent of mad (pirated XP, which we had for reasons I can't remember may have played a part)
Samsung? Premature issues on all of them. Nokia soldiers on forever without even one issue
8.1? Hated my hardware for some reason
Windows 10? Works incredibly well. Biggest issue is explorer might crash, but that's so rare, otherwise the computer never has a problem (if it is it's one program getting it wrong, but the computer isn't taken down by it. In most cases, problem is quickly found and fixed or is minor annoyance until it's solved). Other people's computers seem to have been wrecked by 10, not this one
EDIT: My PS2? Super reliable. Bought in 2000, maybe 2001 and retired in 2008 or so, because the drive went bad. By that time it had done thousands of hours, several hours a day with not one issue. 2007 was probably when I saw the first DRE. It was one of the fat black PS2s. Then I hear from others they were unreliable and some people went through 7 of them O_o
On the other hand, my PS4 which everyone says is really reliable and quiet. Mine runs really hot, annoyingly loud and has had numerous error codes and random issues (picture and sound dropouts, which could be the TV seeing as my old TV with this PS4 never had that issue) which just disappear. It wasn't returned because repackaging it and getting it to GAME was missions from my student house. Still working though. I'd care more if my PC hadn't put it out of a job
