Mak Buku, Oh Mak Buku, mana Engkau? (Macbook, Oh Macbook, where art thou?)


I've placed an advanced booking for a White Macbook with the 2.0GHz Core Duo processor on May 27th. It has not arrived as of today, 11th June. I've called Gallant IT where I did my booking and they've told me it's still pending Sirim's approval. Now, who can tell me, in the name of all that is right and holy, whether Sirim can do a better job than Apple itself in assessing a product's electrical/electronics reliablity. We cannot even replace a bridge connecting our neighbouring country and yet we think that the local "FCC" can do a better job than Apple, a billion-dollar company that has been making amazing products since the 70s. Heck, we still cant even build a proper car despite being a car-making country for 20 odd years. Pfft!
