OK this is a long story. I bought a MacBook in July (the cheapest one), and it failed terribly in October, so they gave me a new one. Then yesterday, I went to the Mac store because my HDD failed. So the manager decided that since I have already had to get a Mac replaced, and since they had no HDD's in stock, that they would outright replace my Mac, with a core2 duo! They also let me upgrade to the better one, and gave me the $100 education discount (I had already gotten the $50 discount on the first one) So I got a good Mac for $50 less, and got it brand new, and another fresh warrenty. I got to say, it was a good day!
