Hi, I have a MacBook Pro version 2 (Purchased Feb 08). Last week I tried to switch it on and it was as good as dead. The power light came on and the optical drive spun up but no display and no bong. After a lot of looking round on the internet I saw there are know issues with the NVidea GeForce graphics card on my particular MBP and that Apple have extended the warranty to 3 years for problems of this type. My MBP had been running very hot for some time so I suspected that some piece of hardware may have been failing for a while and thought the graphics card may have been the cause. After a few calls to Apple UK I took my computer to an approved Apple repairer for them to evaluate (a 60 mile round trip). They came back an said it wasn't the graphics card but the logic board that had failed, and gave me a repair cost of almost 900 GBP. I spoke to Apple UK support, but they refused a CS code (i.e. a code that would get my computer repaired for free). The repairer suggested I try talking to Apple again again as in their opinion the logic board probably failed due to a manufacturing defect. They liaised with Apple and shared their findings. To cut a long story short, after many long, frustrating calls to Apple UK's Customer Relations department they decided NOT to make an exception, despite the report from their approved repairer. I also had a second 60 mile round trip to collect my MBP. I'm now at a bit of a loss, I'm going to follow this up and find out what my rights are under UK Consumer Law as I don't think the computer was fit for purpose as I'd expect it to last longer than 27 months before being rendered useless. To add insult to injury the Customer Relations adviser said he agreed with me but was overruled by his manager. I don't know if this is true but he also advised me to talk to my local Trading Standards office(!) I thought Apple stood for quality and good customer service, but I'm struggling to see either right now.
