    - a word of caution from an apple tech , that unibody mac owners must be extra careful when burning cd's dvd's, never lift or attempt to move your mobile macs, nagagasgas yung disks... its because of the unibody's design na separate yung bottom platform... me tendency daw na ma push yung base and maiipit yung disk...


    so ingatan nyo lang:cool:

    IMHO, i think even if you don't have a unibody mac, it is not advisable to move your laptop while burning a cd... even a person will hava a hard time writing something while moving..

    unibody or not, you shouldn't be moving a computer while burning.

    oddly enough, i accidentally did this just last night. i forgot i was burning something and i carried the computer from my room to the living area. thankfully nothing wrong happened.

    i think that's a general statement that applies to any notebook with burning capabilities.

    I think this is a general rule-of-thumb for ALL computers with CD writers, not just Unibodies.

    hmmm.. how about when the optical drive is in use,not necessarily burning a disc,just accessing the disc?is it safe to move it around? i remember the xbox360 cannot be moved around when there's a disc inside coz it scratches the disc. baka lang its similar for all disc reading gadgets...

    the tech asked me kse if i had the unibody, and i said no.. then he added na mas madlas daw mascratch sa unibody especially kung me pressure when you're holding your portable on the disk slot area(be it reading or burning), he explained something about the design na medjo weak yung protection sa under part ... just sharing infos:)

    Thanks for the heads up man.. I don't normally move my MB even if it's in sleep mode. I turn it off whenever I put it in a bag. I burned a lot of Audio CDs with this machine and so far so good. I've got a sturdy table here.. :)
