You know which ones i mean. Out of all the computers you have ever owned there is 1 or 2 that stand out at being a huge pain in the ass. The ones that, against all odds and reputation, have the worst luck. The ones that make you think 'when they made this one machine in the factory, did they decide to make it out of the defective parts bucket?'. Well thats my current MacBook Pro. All i can say is thank the lord that i bought an applecare package with it. I've had it just over 12 months and I'm having to take it in to the apple store for repairs for the 4th time this week. This thing has had so many parts replaced that the only original parts remaining are the hard drive and the screen. I must add, I'm not taking a dig at apple, or the macbook pro for that matter. I know a lot of other people who have macs, (half of them i converted myself ) some of which have the exact same MBP as me, and they have never had to take a trip to the Apple store for a doctors appointment. I have also owned many apple products before this machine, all of which have been very reliable. Its just the dammed curse on this one machine. 2 Questions. 1- Anyone else ever had a similar situation like this? Or is it just me that has ever had the curse of the nightmare computer? 2- Is there any way of telling this to apple in such a way that they would end my misery and just replace the machine? Look forward to hearing from you guys.
