I have active coverage on my 2010 Quad MP through 2014. If something were to go wrong (god forbid) between December X, 2013 and the end of my warranty period that was beyond repair, would Apple swap it out for a refurb or make me upgrade to the latest revision without all my fabulous internal storage? With my '08 they were unable to repair, I was given a hot swap for a comparable 2010/11. Apparently it was more cost effective to do that than pay shipping back to the repair depot a second time I have searched the forums, but nothing specific to this scenario. This question is probably more for folks with experience working through repair/replacement during product transitions/redesigns (e.g. G5 to Intel, etc.). Thanks for your insight!
