I purchased a MacBook last May, and despite all the complaints flying around at that time, I was happy with my purchase. I don't have any whining or mooing, and I didn't have any problems with the stains on the palm rest. That is, I didn't have any problems with the stains up until a month or two ago, and now it's really bugging me. This is covered by Apple within 1 year after purchase, correct? If I take it in to an Apple Store, how long will it take them to return it to me? The macbook is, for all intensive purposes, my only computer, and it also serves as my dvd player and tv tuner, so I'd like to minimize my time spent without it.
