    I'm about to send in my 2.0 MBP to request a replacement:

    Issues:

    CD/DVD Burner - Malfunctioning
    Top Casing (over Drive) - Bent due to ordinary usage
    Screen damage - Pixels burning out, ghostly (perfeclty straight) vertical line, and brown pixel clusters...
    CPU Whine - GZZZZZZZZZZZZTT!!!
    Thermal Paste - I'm unsure about this one but I'm going to mention it
    Display Joints - Seem to be wearing looser.

    Do u think they might replace this one? I really just want the cosmetic display damage fixed. Otherwise a standard repair would do it. I never have been able to use the DVD/CD burner. Sux.

    Why would you ask this question the day the new MBP came out?:rolleyes:

    Send it in for repairs since you have the 1 year warranty. Did you get AppleCare as well.

    First step is to go through normal support channels. If they don't help (eg. comes back from repair with a different issue, or not repaired at all), try one more time through another method (ie. if you tried apple store first, try applecare telephone second or vice versa). If you have the same problem, its time to turbo.

    When did you buy?

    Has anyone done this. I really don't think it would work.

    sounds like a "wah my MBP is outdated and I want a new one for free" post to me, too.

    could just be my suspicious side, though.
