    I my laptop back to them Monday.. it arrived back to me around 10:30 this morning... THATS crazy turnaround.

    I should note completly fixed... the processor went bad... can someone tell me what these parts are...


    APP-605-0994 SVC
    TOP CASE W APP-630-7487 PCB MLB
    1.83GHZ DC
    SMS/ST APP-603-9857 ASSY
    BEZEL
    M42

    What exactly was done to it? I can obviously tell the processor... what are the other parts.

    MLB = Main Logic Board

    Why they change the bezel is beyond me, maybe they want to give you a new look!

    Anyway the chip is soldered on, so if the chip is not working they basically have to change the whole thing. ;)

    They changed the bezel, because i had the macbook staining ....

    So all the other parts are just bezel related?

    no idea what the SVC is,
    top case is palmrest, trackpad, keyboard etc.,
    MLB is main logic board,
    1.83GHz is the speed of the chip on the replacement logic board,
    SMS could be sudden motion sensor, but it could just be part of the MLB description,
    bezel is the plastic around the display,
    no idea what M42 is...

    Yes it does. The cable frayed on my MagSafe Power Adapter. Rang them on Monday, and they sent a new one no questions asked. It would have arrived today if someone was in.

    I've had my SuperDrive replaced twice and logic board twice as well. Every time they had it back to me in 2-3 days. For me AppleCare was worth every penny - especially since one round of replacements was after the warranty expired.

    M42 is probably a big brother of the M16... secretly incorporated and waiting to be deployed via Airport once macs reach a critical mass...
