If your Mac needs repair are you required to bring it an Apple Store / Apple Repair location? I'm computer savvy and have been building / troubleshooting my owns PCs now for over 10 years. I would prefer that Apple send the parts to me so that I can swap it out, assuming the problem is straight forward, failed hard drive, bad power supply, bad super drive, etc. Is that possible? Has anyone ever pushed to get this done? I don't know about anyone else, but if I bought a $3k Mac Pro, I would have little desire to lug it through the mall to the nearest Apple store.
