My (my daughter's) 2008 MBP's video card (the infamous 8600M GT) died recently. I was fully aware of the recall on this card, so I brought the machine to an Apple Store, fully confident that the card will be replaced free of charge. To my amazement, I was told that this will cost me $310, because the computer is no longer under Apple Care! Just now I checked apple.com and the original KB article (TS2377) has beed replaced with a new one, stating that the free replacement program ended on December 7. 2012 -- two days after my visit to the Apple Store. I'm going back and won't leave until they agree to repair the machine free of charge. I have a Genius bar work order showing I was there on December 5th. Clearly, Apple is in the wrong!
