Dan Benjamin on the MacBook “sudden shutdown” problem:
So for the record, I’ve got a MacBook, been using it for 5+ hours a day for many months, it’s currently my primary machine, and it has never, not once shut down unexpectedly. I don’t know anybody personally who has had this happen.
There were a ton of happy MacBook owners at C4, too. I think it’s clearly the case that the shutdown issue is a real problem, but one that’s only plaguing a minority of MacBook owners. It’s just that when nearly a million MacBooks are being sold each quarter, even a small percentage adds up to a lot of people.
