Well, here is a little background. About a month ago I received a 20" BT AirPort Extreme iMac!! That's the good news. From day one there was a loud fan problem, so on day two I called and spent an hour on the phone with Apple and the conclusion was yes it was unreasonably loud and they would send a new midplane to fix the problem. New midplane was sent and I replaced it. (This took one week) Powered up the computer and the noise was gone!!! Then tried to connect to my Airport and no luck. Spent the next two hours talking with Apple Support and they decided to send me another midplane assembly! Now, I wait about two weeks for this one because they are backordered. Install (a little easier the second time around) and turn on to the same results as before. NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH!!! Not AirPort signal. So, I call Apple again!!! This time I only spend about twenty minutes and they tell me to take it to a authorized fixer (by the way, this guy does not understand why I needed another midplane). Well, I live in the sticks of Iowa, and until the new Apple Store opens in Des Monies I'm hours from an authorized fixer. So, Apple Man decides to just send me a new AirPort Express card! Okay, so now I have to wait again. Now after one month of having my brand new $2000 computer I have not been able to use it for 3/4 of the time because it must connect to the internet via wireless because of my situation. So, I'm not very happy!!! My question is this, what do you think the chances are of me getting Apple to ship me a brand new computer. I feel like I've been royally screwed and that I've handled it too well. In fact as I type this my computer is noticably louder than the last midplane and my G3 iMac 500!!! Does anyone have any precident for getting a whole new computer?
