I Was Just a Statistic

The good news: Apple broke its “early model” curse with the iBook.

The bad news:

MacInTouch: Laptop Reliability:

> In stark contrast, the 12″ iBook G3 became much less reliable through its first five revisions, reaching a 73% failure rate by the fifth revision. This appears to parallel widespread reports of problems with this model, and Apple has acknowledged problems with a warranty extension program for some versions.

Something to add to the price calculations on iBooks, I think.
