    What's the biggest warranty repair anyone has had done without the whole machine being replace?

    The Apple Store Sydney took my 24" iMac (early 2008) after a fan-failure overheating incident and they replaced the:

    Main Logic Board
    LCD Panel
    DVD Drive
    USB Controller
    Right Speaker
    2 Fans

    I wondered why they didn't just replace the whole machine given how many major parts needed replacing. (Not that I mind - I really like my machine).

    Can anyone top this?

    Since it's not the current gen, they probably didn't have any full computers in stock to just give you.

    When I bought my 09 mac mini, the hard drive died within a few days and they just handed me a brand new one because it was stock and they had them there.

    Aside from the case, one speaker and the hard disk that IS the whole machine, isn't it? lol

    I had the LCD panel replaced once on my 24" mid-2007 iMac. That is the single most expensive component in the machine with the logic board a close second I think.

    Is everything working well for you now? I hope so.

    My 24" 2.16GHz white iMac has had the following replaced:
    LCD
    Superdrive
    Logic Board
    Video Card
    Mighty Mouse (twice)

    I am trying to find something else wrong with it so I can take it back one more time before October. I really just want an Aluminum replacement.
