    "say what you want about Dell, but atleast they can apply thermal grease in a better than average fashion." - Great comment :)

    Didn't we just talk about this in another thread? Maybe I read it somewhere else.

    Anyway, whatever. They can try to have it removed all they want. No law says you can't try. I just doubt any judge will back them up.

    We have another thread on this subject, its big business squash truth , replace with spin and reap the profits. Sad but seems to be the status quo of a lot of American born companies these days iam sad to say. $$$

    Lawyers couldn't bring down that internet cesspool soon enough. But I agree with Dont Hurt Me, it's all about corporate America...

    To late apple, the damage is done! I dont get it, so they use imo a legal loophole to pull the story, but everyone now knows what one fo the problems with the MBP is!

    Bit unfair to say that Apple did that. Some 2-cents an hour guy in China maybe...

    At the end of the day Apple's brand is on the computer and it's completely up to them to ensure the quality of the product. I believe Asustek has the contract for the MBPs but still the buck stops with Apple - they contracted them.

    If Apple were open and honest about the situation initially they wouldn't have dug themselves into the hole they are in. Instead they've tried to cover their ears and pretend nothing's wrong in the name of saving themselves a few bucks in technical repairs. And it's at the expense of their user's enjoyment of correctly functioning machines. I don't know how anyone can seriously try to side with Apple on this besides the most short-sighted shareholders.
