Bought my macbook in August 2006 with the addition Applecare plan. All was well til about 13 months in (just after the end of the original warranty) 1st problem - started having bluetooth not available. Took it into Apple, had it repaired 2nd problem - started having issues shutting it down. Hard drive then died on me (luckily had backed up 10 days before!) 3rd problem - bluetooth acting up yet again despite new logic board and bluetooth. After a fair bit of email conversation, and after taking the machine to an AASP to get it looked over, a helpful representative from Apple arranged to have my machine swapped out, and in Jan 2008 I received a brand new Santa Rosa 2.2 (they also moved the apple care cover over to the new machine). Yet again, after around 13 months. 1) the plastic around the wristpad just came off the other day. Emailed the lady back and she just told me to take it in for the repair 2) i'm now getting the bluetooth not available errors again, on the new machine. 3) there are several hairline cracks around the back of the machine It's only really used as a desktop replacement, I've got an Apple keyboard and logitech mouse plugged in, as well as my 22" LG screen. I can't understand how bad the build quality is on these machines, I see i'm not alone in experiencing the same problems. Have I got any kind of case for another replacement, even if just a refurb? I've emailed the representative again so awaiting a reply, but I've lost faith in this model, it's not fit for its purpose. If it fails again after August 2009 then I'm completely out on my own - last time the logic board was replaced I was told it would have cost £500 had it not been for Applecare.
