I was recently reading around on the Apple Discussion Boards and stumbled upon this thread.

The right speaker on my Macbook 2.0 sounds distorted. I
went to the nearest Apple Store to do an exchange bringing my iPod
along to compare the sound quality with the other Macbooks there. They
all had the same right speaker distortion. To take it further, I tried
an old Powerbook. No problems at all. Clean sound from both speakers. I
just cant see all of those Macbooks having defective right speakers.
Assembly or Software problem? What do you guys think?

I have this very same problem with my MacBook Pro and I have been through a similar experience at an Apple Store.

Good news for 20 million plus veterans. The FBI recovered the stolen VA laptop that contained their personal information. Better yet, they’re fairly confident that no one accessed the data. Of course, they can’t guarantee with 100 percent certainty that the data wasn’t sifted through, but chances are good that the thief wasn’t a criminal mastermind.

Phew, That Was Close

Sites like MacUpdate.com (my personal fave) and VersionTracker.com prove indispensable at tracking our favorite application versions and user comments about them. There’s a new kid on the block that combines software updates with social networking and the ability to discover new applications.
