    I think I may have one here guys...

    MACBOOK PRO

    • CPU Whining : http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303365
    • hazardous over-heating: http://www.engadget.com/2006/05/01/...cbook-pros-overheating-due-to-thermal-grease/
    • Poor thermal paste application : http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2006/05/23/thermal-paste-question.html
    • Melting power adapters : http://www.flickr.com/photos/rheauchyr/sets/72057594082940769/
    • the fame itself is falling apart to where it will no longer read DVDs... (mine included) : http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=540419&tstart=0

    This is enough to get the Attorney General's attention... I wonder if it is enough to get Apple's attention... hm..?

    What do I want??? I just want a Macbook Pro that has all of these flaws remedied. If this current MBP turns out to need repair this is going to become a lawsuit. On behalf of whatever state is applicable.

    Just letting ya'll know who may pobably sitting at home depressed because you can't afford a MBP... well I saved all my cash and got one and inherited a whole **** load of bad design flaws!

    So... just don't go buy one untill they fix these problems... and i'm sure it won't be any time soon either...

    You have no case if Apple offers to fix it. You can refuse to have it fixed and then in court the judge would ask you why you didn't get it fixed by Apple then dismiss the case.

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble, but the problems aren't as bad as they seem I don't think.

    I know quite a few people who have MBPs as well as myself, and I got mine in March...been the best Mac I've had by far!

    Perhaps not... but if it is fixed and then 2 months later the same problems appear...

    It would just be nice if these problems never afflicted the MBP again... the best way for a small guy to get a big Corporation's attention is the Judicial system. But of course, I would have to have a real case to submit...

    That doesnt matter at all.
    His isnt 'the best Mac I've had by far!'
    I apologize, im just getting so sick of hearing that. Its a known fact that there are many 'bad apples' in the production thus far. He is talking about one (of many) bad apples.

    no pun intended.

    The Mac Book Pro service manual even instructs the apple assemblers that they should apply the thermal paste as a large blob. It looks like apple have learnt how to apply paste now as the new Mac Pro service manual says that a thin even layer of thermal paste should be used and that it shouldn't leak over the edge of the cpu.

    Your and IDIOT. People like you are the reason why prices are so inflated. Did you have all of those issues with your MBP? Did you send it back to apple for repair?

    I'm still not tracking how a lawsuit is going to land you with a working MacBook Pro.

    You make it sound like Apple has a secret batch of "guaranteed 100% perfect" MacBook Pros hidden somewhere that they only give out to people who are really pissed off after buying the normally botched ones that Apple sends out for retail sale.

    If your MacBook has problems, Apple will repair it. Free, even. For a whole year.

    if the same problems persist you're covered by the "lemon law" and you'll get a replacement.

    yes it would be nice if no one ever had any problems with anything they bought. but we're far from perfection and Utopia. this is life.

    As long as people go out and buy the 1st version of new hardware in droves Apple will continue with their beta-like production issues on their 1st version of new hardware.

    Besides Apple is more of a music related company than a computer company now anyway. :rolleyes:
