    I know about the iPod conditions, but are the Mac factories and different?

    EDIT:I read Apple's policy, and it looks as if they are okay.

    Apple does not have any factory employees, most all the work is done by subcrontractors these days.

    Apple got rid of the last of their inhouse workers years ago, though they may still own the old Apple factory buildings the subcontractors work in these days.

    Apple has a "standard" that they must adhere to in order to remain a subcontractor.

    Heck, send in a Mac for repair by Apple and Flextronics will do it for you.
