    ok, i'm just having more bad luck:

    2 days ago I asked amazon for an exchange on my macbook because the lcd screen would click when i opened the laptop. Now i just looked at my amazon account and they shipped me a replacement laptop today! So i think I've just gotta call them and talk to someone about this whole thing.

    hahah you called me a n00b! good one..

    so seriously, you got last weeks old slow and outdated macbook. what difference, really, is this new, up to date and modern macbook going to make? What motivates you except the desire to have the newest and best? Come on, i'm curious...

    While the name calling wasn't justifiable, I think the trouble for the upgrade was.

    His original purchase was faulty, so he'd need to replace it anyway. Why not get the latest one then?

    A few calls hardly seems that much of a hassle.

    Well think about it, in a year or so if I want to upgrade and sell, which would yield a better selling price, a 2yr old macbook or the last model...this one will be faster/more memory and be easier to sell in the long run. Same with cars, if you were to buy the exact same model, would you like a mid 06 or a newer 07?????

    I just had my MB 2.16 replaced...

    due to some damage with the screen that was noted 3 weeks after I bought it, and Apple finally came around and stepped up to the plate and exchanged it for a MB 2.4 this afternoon. My specs:

    2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB
    250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
    SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English
    AirPort Extreme Card & Bluetooth

    I was doing back-flips out the door! Oooh-rah! :p
