    Hello
    I have a early 2008 macbook pro 2.66 ghz 4gb of ram and 200gb hard drive has applecare til the end of summer 2011.
    Recently I have been having issues with the system the super drive failed on me 2 times in a row with in a month period. The battery was just replaced after 4 month old replacement would not keep charge more than an hour. Looks like new one is doing this as well. And I noticed its being a lot slower than usual for some task. Just did a fresh install of leopard too.

    also when they did my super drive i mentioned my screen when open was not as secure so they made it snug now when closed it sits uneven.
    I went back and they said its a user problem.


    1. sell it on ebay and show all documentation of repairs

    2. if something else happens try to get a replacement from apple?
    if so how do i go about doing so and I would hate to get a 13inc mbp as a replacement.

    3. keep it and keep getting things fixed?

    I run my own business from my laptop and when apple fixes it I get delayed/set back a great deal.

    Hello Maryland from Maryland,
    Have you called Apple directly and talked to customer relations? I understand how much of a pain it is to lose the very tool that allows you to earn a living and they do as well and at this point may very well replace the system provided it is still under warranty, which it is.
