Hey guys here is my story, I bought an aluminum 24" which is barely a year old and I've brought it back to the Applestore 3 times for repairs. All tree times it was a hard drive issue. Well it has been at the store for 2 weeks. I spoke to a Genius bar associate last week and he said my computer was next in line for repairs. They stated it was the senor on my logic board was causing the hard drive to fail. A week goes by and I haven't heard from them. So I call them today to see what the hell is going on today and they are saying they found another problem with it. When they replaced the logic board they ran a diagnostic test and it came back as a failure. So I'm looking at Weds the latest I may get my iMac back if no other problems surface. What really pissed me off no one had the courtesy to call and let me know that what happened. It's been two weeks I been without a computer. My girlfriend is out of town with my macbook so I'm posting this on my cellphone. I had to call and find out the status on it. I'm really pissed off and I'm trying to figure out what are my options.
