apple removing thread about lower ram failure

This is despicable. There was a long running thread of well over 300+ posters posting their lower ram slot failure on 15" powerbooks and their experience. Apple seems to have removed the thread from their discussion board.
I think this is a very serious problem like the failing iBooks.

I could not agree more. As a preventative just in case Apple does nothing about it we do recommend purchasing the extended warranty for those that do not have it already even tho expensive, it is less than the MB replacement.

We're hoping Apple steps up and does something about this........'course they gotta preserve that 29% margin

Groovetubes situation is a in progress not for board discussion.

I suspect Apple is chewing on this ( not just this one ) - it's not like it's new ....or uncommon.

DberG: iBooks had/ are having a lot of problems with logic board failures. They supposedly had fixed the problem with the introduction of the G4's but I had a logic board failure on mine (1ghz). MacDoc coudl probably give you more info.

Someone has. There's a few. I recall the G4 noise threads, then the iBook logic board failures, all those threads were deleted from their discussion boards. It's the first place I look for possible issues on certain mac models. It's also on just about every mac oriented board I've looked at. It seems the problem is wide spread. The other thing one person noted before the thread was deleted (maybe that was it...) was that it seems the powerbook in most cases can perform normally for some time without giving the user any clue, until they happen to look at their about mac, and clue into the fact there seems to be a little less ram than was installed. That, and the loss of the chime on startup, but many will turn down their volumes.
Yes Macaholic, problem is in progress I think. I'm really hoping for a solution, I can't afford portables anymore at this rate.
