Hooray....after many repairs and problems with my MacBook, Apple is sending me a replacement MacBook. I had the middle MacBook model in white. The thing was that I knew based on the number of repairs they were probably getting ready to offer a replacement. The power adapter just stopped working on my MacBook and they determined it's actually some power thing inside the computer rather than the adapter causing the problem. I was going to have to send it in for repair again, so they agreed to replace the computer. I was hoping, and I know this is greedy, that the timing would work out to be whenever the new MacBooks come out. I was really psyched about going aluminum, as I have to say I've gotten a bit tired of looking at my white MacBook. So, as a consolation to myself, I asked if I could pay the difference for the BlackBook and they said based on the trouble I had they would upgrade me to that model at no charge. So that's pretty cool. I haven't actually seen one in person, but I've heard that they're more matte? I'm hoping that means they don't scratch as easily. I did an advanced replacement which means that they'll send out the new MacBook first after putting a hold on my card. That way I can use the power cord from the new one to turn on my old one to at least get the data off of it. (Even though they say it's the internal component, I still think a new adapter will help it charge long enough to get the data off, because one I plug in the current one it flickers just like the one did before they sent me the current replacement cord, which worked for a while before starting to flicker...) Anyhow, it is a pain being without all my music and files for the time being....but I'm pretty lucky overall.
