I think my laptop is on its last legs. I've used the hell out of it, but with all the problems I've had with this thing, I'm finally coming to terms with my one and only possibly being a lemon. PROBLEMS: 1.) String of dead pixels. Well, not entirely dead. They're red, green or blue depending on mood. 2.) Superdrive won't eject unless the laptop is upside down. 3.) Headphone input has to be perfectly aligned for audio jack to work. 4.) Paint on the palm rests is eroding. I must have abnormally acidic sweat. 5.) Missing two feet (the poorly attached gray things underneath). When the logic board failed, Apple fixed it for a max price of $300. Does anyone know if they'll honor the same price cap for multiple repairs? If so, are paint flaws covered? Apple is offering me ~$350 for the laptop outright through their "recycling" program but I'm pretty sure I'd get more if I fixed it then sold it. Since I've owned it, I have replaced the battery five times (luckily I only had to pay for two of them) and the logic board once. So that brings me to a grand total of between $500-600 for laptop repairs over 3 years on an $1100 laptop. I will never go without AppleCare again. Sidenote - Do those plastic case protectors reduce heat dissipation? I'm trying to plan on what I can do to better preserve my next MBP short of not using it. Thanks in advance!
