hey guys.. the issues i've been having with my MBP are pretty well documented in the forums.. i had the LCD changed once , logic board once , superdrive twice and the power charger once and the battery once... i just got the logic board fixed in may and the same bug (with the graphical artefacts) started showing up again on my mac and so on... I was anyways under applecare so i called them up and told them about my situation,, and they agreed to send me a brand new MBP with a hires display (customised !!!) i'm waiting for them to mail me the shipping label so that i can ship mine back to them I love apple!!!! P.S: when i first made the call to talk about the issues wit my battery , it had 300+ cycles on it and the applecare rep told me that they wouldn't replace the battery cause it has run its life i dont understand what he meant by that but anyways doesnt matter to me.. so anyhow if anyone else's battery says service battery or something else out of the ordinary dont delay in calling applecare like me! .. anyhow this was before i started describing my other issues when my call was transferred to a higher authority!!
