back to the apple store? I'm reading a lot that whenever there's a problem people just bring it back into the store and they fix it and it usually takes days to fix it. Do most macbooks need repair like this? how many of you never had to take it in? I have a 7 year old dell that's given me a few problems throughout the years that were software related that I was able to fix easily. One or two hardware problems to like the disk tray stopped working (don't use it so wasn't an issue) and the screen stopped turning on (I fixed this by slapping it a few times. serious ). I'm kind of OCD about my stuff and don't feel comfortable giving it to people. If I get a mbp, should I worry about unavoidable issues coming up that I would need to take it into apple for? I don't believe it but it does concern me when some critics say apple designs their stuff to fail after a certain period of time.
