Ok so here's the situation. I purchased my 15'' MBP 2.16 2GB RAM 100GB 7200 RPM HD, at the end of August. Since then I have had three logic boards, two bottom cases, two top cases, and three un-needed trips to the apple store for repairs that were required because they didn't but the computer back together correctly. Once, they forgot to hook up the keyboard, second they forgot to tighten the case properly and third they actually scratched up my imaculate unit very badly. Ok now to the current situation. I finally had enough and called the apple care tech support to get the number to customer relations. If anyone has it please let me know so I don't have to jump through hoops anymore. A customer relations agent agreed that my unit was a lemon and needed to be replaced. I am unfamiliar with the normal process, and wanted input from those of you that have been in a similar situation. As he was looking through his computer trying to see if he had a comparable system to mine he said that they no longer make the MBP with the 7200 HDs and only have the 120, 160 and 200. Which he agreed to bump me to the 160 to offset the extra cost I spent for the 7200 back when I purchased it. He said that they would be overnighting me a comparable system with the 2.16 and the 2gb ram and the 160 gb HD instead of the 7200 since they don't have any more of those. My question is this. Will I be getting a CD or C2D. I really don't care that much since I originally paid for the CD and would be totally satisfied if I recieved a CD that actually worked and had no problems. My CONCERN is that if they do UPGRADE me to a C2D, then I would be getting the 2.16, which has the 128 VRAM. I had the 256VRAM in the CD 2.16 MBP and I need that extra VRAM for my job. Plus the fact that I think the graphics card is more important than the upgraded processor. Anyway what are my options???? Can I request they upgrade me to the 2.33 C2D because it comes with the 256VRAM and that is what my original system had. The customer relations specialist said that they system should be comparible in price to what I spent, not necasarily the technology. So I should have no problem. My concern is that they will tell me that I can only have the 2.16 because that was what my old system was, and they will argue that they are already upgrading my processor to the C2D. My other question to you is what would you rather have. The 2.16 CD with the better graphics card, or the C2D chip with the lower graphics card? Or am I just missing the point becuase the newer C2D chip makes the 128 graphics card just as good as the old 256 graphics card???? I am really conufsed as to what I am entitled to and what others in this community would do. Your comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys. Sorry it was so long.
