My mac mini (intel core duo) started misbehaving about 2 weeks - it often wouldnt switch on and it wouldnt wake from sleep. I took it to the local Apple reseller, who took a day to diagnose a faulty motherboard, and now I have to wait for a new board to be shipped into the country. By the time I get it back, it'll have been gone for 10 working days. I've tried every way I can to get an email address of someone in Apple USA (or europe) to ask them if they think this is acceptable, but of course, not been able to find such an address. Those of you living in more mainstream places - what would you consider acceptable timing? Do any of you have any suggestions for getting hold of Apple people? What also amazes me, is the intel mac minis are flying off the shelves here - it astounds me that they dont have a basic stock of repair items..
