    Been using a Macbook for the past 7 years, never had any issues, love it. Recently bought a small chrome book to take on business trips with me. As I am sitting here using it, I am realizing how much of a difference the backlit keyboard on the Macbook makes. I have tilted the screen down more times trying to see where I am at on it.

    Pointless thread, but then again, thats what the Pub is for right?

    I don't get too bent out of shape over small things for the most part but I must say, after having three laptops so equipped, the non-backlit keyboard would now be a deal breaker for me.

    I'm just so use to it now that I didn't even think about it until I realized it wasn't there. I wonder what other little things I'm taking for granted.

    I use a USB DAC on my PC to pump music into my stereo amp. That has a fantastic positive impact on the sound, but the electromagnetic interference (EMI) from the USB board in my PC was causing all kinds of static noises.

    Bought what is called a USB isolator and that fixed the issue altogether. Crystal clear sound, now. And it's all thanks to this tiny little device.

    Not computer related but a "please" and "thank you" go a long way.

    New guitar strings for every recording session.

    If you think about the fact that the Macbook's keys light up the way they do, it's not a small thing at all!
