My 13-month-old MacBook Pro broke. Can you guess? Yeah, the AppleCare warranty had just expired. The fan made a horrible "playing card in the bicycle tire spokes" sound for about 60 seconds, then stopped forever. [more inside]

Is there a way to reuse an apple powerbook g4 battery to power a macbook pro? I know that it doesn't fit, but I'm hoping there is some kind of external pack that can accept and charge a powerbook battery but which can power a macbook pro. Any ideas? [more inside]

If you had $1000 to spend on peripherals/software/extra things for a new MacBook Pro, what would you buy? Assume that you have no need for a printer or really expensive software like LogicPro or FinalCut. Through a generous gift, I find myself in this position.

Got a new Macbook Pro. AVI files now show up as a white screen when imported into iMovie. I think that some codec is missing. I am not sure which one it is and would like a reputable source to download from. Any idea how to correct this?

So the superdrive on my Macbook Pro is having the same problem as a lot of people on Apple's discussion
website - it is spitting out most DVDs. I am outside the 90 day support period so I can't call them to tell me what to do but inside the warranty period, and an Apple Store is too far from me. What can I do about repairs?

What's the largest internal hard drive available for a Mac Book Pro? I currently have a 120 ATA drive that came preinstalled when I bought the computer. Preferably, I'd like to be able to have two internal hard drives, swapping out my DVD drive...I know that the MCE OptiBay Hard Drive 160gb/5400rpm is available, but I'd like something bigger!

How do I boost the volume output on my MacBook Pro? Even with everything maxed out it barely dents the volume my old Gateway produced. Is there a hack that will allow me to take the governor off?

Can I take the 512 meg SODIMM from a MacBook Pro (a PC2-5300 DDR2 chip, according to the MacTracker program), and put it in a 17" iMac G4, which wants PC2100?
What are the rules on this kind of backwards compatability?
