Hi guys. Just wanted to say hi at first for coming to this forum for the first time. Before I ask my question, let me share you my story. Last february, I purchased my first macbook pro (early 2008) with applecare. Ever since I purchased the mac, I have sent the macbook pro for mail in repair more than 5 times. Until now, it was going to be the 6th time in a row. I couldn't hesitate any longer. I called Apple 2 days ago and requested an exchange and (with doubts) asked for the new unibody macbook pro. Once I spoke to a guy and explained my problem, he sent me to another group of people. From there on, a nice lady spoke to me and asked me about the problem. I told her how angry I have been with my mac, etc... I asked her if there is a possible way that I can have my mac exchanged for the unibody macbook pro. She had me waiting for more than 2 hours trying to find out until finally, she told me to go the next day to the Apple store to exchange my macbook pro for the newest one. I was like no way. I went and actually swap my early macbook pro for the newest one. Was I too lucky? This is why I ask: 1. I used to think that Apple is strict with their rules and policies; consider the fact that they usually exchange a specific model for the same one. I taught that they usually exchange it for a refurbish one. In better words, I never taught that an older macbook pro can be exchangeable for a newer one. 2. Can it be that there wasn't any more of the earlier models left in their Apple store? 3. Or was the lady too nice to me? Please write back, anyone, thanks!
