Ok, So I got a 17" Macbook Pro for Christmas 3 years ago. I got the 3 year protection plan. Since then I have had disks stuck, flashing screens, bad batteries, etc. With 19 days left of warranty I just realized the battery is splitting apart and I can see inside of it. The battery also shuts off the computer at 90% left. There is a class action law suit about the Nvidia 8600M GT graphics card. Supposedly Nvidia will spend 2 million dollars in fixing the affected computers. I'm really disappointing with this 3,600$ laptop. If anyone has dealt with a similar problem or has any experience with this please reply.
