Getting my internal modem to work with 10.4 was very difficult. I had  
to put the 10.4 dvd in, run the installer, and reboot!

Apparently some specific model Macs had internal modem issues with  
10.4.0, but as far as I can tell the problem's been patched since. I  
can't find any references to anyone having the issue since 2005; it  
was fixed in 10.4.2, which released three months after 10.4.0.

About the hinge? It's a design defect no one noticed at the time.  
It's not like the things snap out of the box. If they'd kept making  
the things, they would've noticed it eventually.

It'd be more valid to 'get on' them about the CPU, since that was  
apparent at the time. :)
