    Hi all,
    First of all, this is not a complaining thread, but I do have issues.

    1. I lose battery life like mad. I've made sure I have no apps open, but still, even today, I've lost about 40% battery and I've used it for maybe 15 minutes MAX. (It was charged last night too)

    2. Wifi works (sometimes)

    3. It does this. (see pic below)

    I'm not a very happy camper right now. What to do?

    Thanks

    Nice 3D effect!

    Too many issues here. I would exchange it.

    Haha thanks.. :p

    Two questions: 1. is it worth a shot doing a complete wipe and reinstall? I just think that's probably the first thing Apple is going to do.
    2. If I do get it replaced, does Apple reimburse you for the invisible shield if you installed one? (I did... :eek: )

    I should also add to the list it has tons of light bleed...which I was just going to deal with..but maybe not now.

    Exchange it. I can go two or three days of light use before I drop that much battery life!

    Also looks like a bad gpu.

    Light bleed is normal according to Apple and all the reports here. Personally I think it would be nice if the display was better quality, but it's not.

    I've had a couple and they vary depending on how well they were glued together.

    I think it comes back to what Steve said when he was trashing netbooks, it's hard for Apple to make anything with good quality for under $1,000.

    It's abnormal take it back or call and return it for another. No point in wasting your time on it.

    1. Sure, try it. If you have a bad gpu, it won't help.
    2. No

    Bummer about them not reimbursing for invisible shield. Well I'll try a complete wipe so when I bring it in I can say I already did that so they don't have to waste their time.
