    Had many hardware issues over 3 years of apple care

    and one month after apple care expired and i get crappy performance slow read/write speeds and consistent crashes.

    needless to say apple was nice enough to replace it for me.

    im a happy camper :)

    Congrats!

    Paradoxically, sometimes Apple behaves strangely...

    Just curious, what were your 2009 and current specs?

    Congrats you guys!

    My favourite experience thus far was Apple replacing my 2006 iMac's LCD after 4 years (in 2010) with no AppleCare ever attached :)

    Wow, How did you do that?

    My late 2007 Santa Rosa 17" MBP with 3 years AC died during the fourth year due to a well-known NVidia graphics issue, but they asked me to pay to replace the logic board! :mad:

    Just like any other service related experience in life, it all depends on who you get.
