About 2 weeks ago I was 2.5 years into my Macbook Pro. I bought the 17in 2008 model. I had my logic board, a battery, casing, keyboard, two chargers all replaced bottom line I was happy I got Applecare on my purchase. Well I noticed my ethernet port wasn't working two weeks ago and brought it in, they replaced the logic board and I got it back...The ethernet port worked, however now there was red dots all over the screen, they replaced the logic board again and it was still failing again. Long story short I got a new 17inch Macbook Pro through my AppleCare since there was so many issues. This computer is really amazing I ended up upgrading to the i7 which cost me an additional 400, I also went antiglare 50 bucks and 8gb of memory as well(3rd party). I dropped a grand in upgrades and applecare for 3 more years on the new computer but it is worth it. Time to write 2 thank you notes.
