    I've had my macbook pro repaired at-least twice now because of keyboard and airport crapping out on me, then the keyboard stopped working again! Now for the third time its ****ed up on me and I am annoyed (hence the '****in' :p) I dont want to be without my mbp for another 7days while they are repairing it, you think they'd be able to replace it with a new mbp? Dont really care what model it is, as-long as it aint crapping out like my current one! My warranty runs out on June 11th and in the space of 1month its f'ed up three times!

    generally 3 repairs of the same component would equal a replacement, no?

    Or in this case, you should get a brand new MBP. Tell them that you're concerned since it's near the end of it's warranty and you don't want it breaking again. Just be polite and forward and they should take care of you.

    Suggest you call Apple and talk to their customer relationship people. Explain the situation and your concerns, such as warranty running out during repair (and not fix of course).

    My experience in dealing with Apple in a similar situation is to have their service center to replace a faulty LCD panel on my MBP one month after purchase. Still not fixed after second time. I called their tech support line, and specifically ask to talk to their customer relationship people. These guys were more responsive, and they agreed to exchange a new MBP to me.

    No harm to try in your case.

    I rang up applecare and the dudes like no we cant replace your laptop, we will try to fix it then we may replace if it happens again. Not at all happy with this response, if after it gets fixed and something happens again after the warranty finishes i'll have to splash out £1200, I cant really afford that let alone get apple protection!

    Going to in-store to see if I get a more fruit-full answer!

    Right, I took it in for repair again...then a few days after the repair was done it f'ed up again! I phone up apple and they said that they will replace it, thank ****. How long do apple take to replace via post and stuff? anyone know?

    "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." :p

    Sounds like never repaired it.

    They usually ship it overnight.
