My late 2011 MacBook Pro has been having issues for sometime. It's the same documented issues of video artifacts and the like. Well the other day my MacBook completely failed while playing Minecraft. So I thought no big deal I'll go to the Apple store and have them replace my logic board since the program is going on for these models. The tech I dealt with said that it was indeed a combination of the logic board and the video card. But he says that they won't replace it because of the fact that I had previously opened my computer to replace the SSD and upgrade my ram to 16 GB. He said 16 GB was not supported and by adding that amount of RAM I had voided the special warranty/recall for the 2011-2013 MBP's and they would not repair the machine. Now I've been to the store many times with other laptops and I've never heard something like upgrading ram or a hard drive for the warranty. In fact it says on the website that it doesn't. I also got the impression that the tech I met at the Genius Bar had some sort of prejudice or grudge against me. I'm young and it wouldn't be the first time i've had an Apple genius talk down to me, but he was giving me a look like I was trying to pull one over on him. But he didn't like me for some reason and was short with me most of the time. So I guess what I'm asking is if I'm SOL or if I should put back the stock hard drive and RAM then go back another day? I'll see if I can get a different tech who is more reasonable. Has anyone had an issue like this?
