Sigh. So, in July of this year I bought a refurb 2015 13" Macbook Pro directly from Apple. That was, apparently a mistake. I have babied it. It has been nowhere near any liquid since I've owned it. I can absolutely 100% guarantee that neither I nor anyone in or house (no one else gets to use it) has spilled anything near it. No one has borrowed it. It just hasn't happened. And I don't live in a particularly humid place... But, a week and half ago the SSD died. After keeping it for five days, the local Apple store finally opened it open and said they found corrosion near the connection point of the SSD and they refused to fix it under warranty. No matter what I said, the techs wouldn't change their mind or do anything for me. It was my fault, plain and simple. But it isn't my fault. I'm guessing that what happened is that some one out there bought it, spilled water on it, and returned it. The refurb folks fired it up, it worked, and that's it. They shipped it! Oh, and by the way, the moisture sensors don't show anything. Or maybe it's a design flaw... I have the computer at another place that is trying to do something for me, but at this point, I'm really not happy with Apple's guilty until proven innocent policy here, especially since the moisture sensors haven't even been affected. You'd think they could do something for me, but unless my current tech person can work something out, I'm guilty until proven innocent (which isn't going to happen). So what do I have to do when I buy a refurb computer? Crack it open the moment I get it? I guess so... Oh and by the way, the latest repair place said that there was a case screw that had been broken off - I didn't do it that either, since I've never opened the machine. If anyone has any advice about how to handle this, please feel free to post. I can imagine that to Apple I might look guilty except that the moisture sensors don't show anything. Anyhow, just felt like venting. I know one thing - I will never, never take a machine for repair to an Apple Store. Those guys seems to have no authority or ability to think independently (well, at least at that store).
