As some of you know, my two day old 17" MBP failed 2 days after receiving it. After sending it to Apple to get fixed 3 days ago, I just received this email. Important repair request Dear Taylor, I am excited to inform you that your computer qualifies for Apple's Capture Program. What is the Capture Program? When Apple launches a new product we are required to take samples of all the failures. This process helps Apple Produce a better future model. At this time you have two options. Option 1: -Continue with repair of your original unit. You may want to select this option if there is data on the faulty computer that you have not backed up. Apple cannot transfer your old data to your new computer. Please note: Generally repair is faster then replacement. Option 2: -Request a new machine. You will not be required to pay anything. Apple will ship you a new unit from the warehouse. Any power adapters, cables, and software you currently posses from the old unit, you are entitled to keep. If you have a refurbished unit you will be receiving a new unit. The new unit will be the exact replica of your original purchase unless otherwise discussed. Generally your new Mac will ship from the warehouse in 24 hours. If your computer has paid upgrades then it can take 1-3 days. Once your computer ships, I will forward you the tracking information. The Fed Ex tracking information will provide you with an estimated delivery day. After your new unit has been delivered I will send a follow-up email that includes all the handling information about AppleCare. Also included in that email will be your one-year limited warranty. Please keep the warranty for your records. Please elect from your two options by responding to this email. Reply: repair - for repair. We will process the request, repair and return the unit as soon as possible. If you would like a new computer please fill out the following template. Name: Phone: Address: (shipping address) Email Address: Please be advised, Apple reserves the right to move your unit on to repair if you have not suggested otherwise within 24 hours. Thank you.

The only thing that I am a little curious about is the fact that the email makes this "Capture Program" sound like a huge honor to be a part of. I'm sorry, but this entire ordeal is a huge headache, and you're "excited to inform me" that there's a problem. Before reading on, I thought there would be some sort of benefit for being a part of this fantastic program, but I was sadly mistaken.
