    I had nothing but luck with my recent notebooks from Apple. My first iBook that my mum now has and my Powerbook have been going strong without any major problems.
    But my MBP that I bought last year has had nothing but troubles. In the last year I had 2 batteries replaced, 1 logic board, and the Superdrive. Either this is total bad luck or it is really true that you shouldn't buy a rev a product from Apple. Or at least not from the first 1 or 2 batches.

    Well I hope it holds until the new ones come out. Anyone else bought the first batch last year and is having problems?

    It seems like all Revision A's has issues. If you are that worried about Rev As, I would not hold out for an update because the next update will be another revision A because it features a new chipset. (Merom MBPs were a rev b because they featured mostly a new processor, leaving almost everything else the same. Santa Rosa Macs will bring this back to Revision A, because of the large number of changes that will take place in the update, and even parhaps a new case design)

    How will you know if Santa Rosa comes out with revision B? Won't revision B still be a Santa Rosa chip?

    Santa Rosa is the chipset, Merom is the "chip".
