    I sent my last rev. 15" PB in for repair. It had lost a key and it was affected by the lines issue. 5 weeks later (today to be more exact), after giving Apple alot of hassle for taking so long, they decided to give me a brand new 15" MBP 1.83 GHz.
    It's really nice. No whine, a bit hotter than the PB but no problem at all.

    Just wanted to share my joy with you guys :D

    Sometimes they do come through. My 15" MBP was supposed to be sent in for replacement on Saturday of last week. When the 17" was announced on Monday I wanted to trade up. They changed my replacement order to a straight return and ordered me the 17" version instead.

    Pretty cool.

    I said this in another thread but this is the first time that I was happy to have been sent a defective product :D

    Awesome! Do you have to pay the difference or did they pay it?

    Tell us about it when you get it please!

    Well, the MBP I had specced out was actually more expensive than the 17" :eek:

    I got money BACK. :confused:

    Yes. Totally maxed out. I didn't get the faster drive though. Went for the larger hard disc instead. I did some reading and the jury was still out on whether the faster drive speed would have a noticeable difference.

    I've been following your issues and a) man, you have had some rotten luck and b) you are one patient individual.

    Anything happen after you sent Steve the email?

    Is a Quad with 2 GB RAM and 7800 GTX 256 MB GDDR3 faster in performance than a 100% souped up 17" MBP (7.200 rpm. drive, 2 GB RAM?)
