    I have a 2 year old MBP. Covered by Applecare.

    In June the Logic Board failed and was replaced. It took 14 days to replace.

    On September 21st. The Logic Board failed again. Genius took in for repair and feared it would be 7-14 days. Fortunatly I got it back yesterday after just 3 days.

    Got the MBP home booted it up and now cant get on the net wirelessly as the message i get is Airport Card not installed.
    I have reset the PRAM and powered off 5 or 6 times without luck. Reading the various Apple sites it looks like it is a problem with the logic board . I will take it back today but if it is a logic board problem should I now insist on a replacement MBP. This will be the 3rd one.

    Tthe store is 50 miles away and so far i will have driven 300 miles just this week !

    thanks

    I've heard that Apple has a policy of replacing faulty computers after the third failure. So yes, I think it would be worth asking about.
