I've been a loyal Apple user since my dad brought home an LCIII when I was 9 and have been patient with them. Today....it's wearing thin. In the last month, my MBP battery has gone from 98% Health to 8%. This is my 2nd battery, as well, and it's only lasted 8 months. The first I traded in as part of a recall with Apple. Now, I realize that EXTREMELY heavy use would drain it quickly, but I use it for no more than work (nothing more than Microsoft Office stuff and checking e-mail) during the day, and it's shut off at night. I got this laptop in 2006 when the Core 2 Duo came out and it worked great. Then just as the warranty expired, my logic board died. I had to get that fixed. Then I had to get the battery replaced...(after it pretty much did the same thing) and now this. My brothers (I have 3) all liked my MBP and got one of their own, though theres was the next revision (rev C? it was Summer 2007). All have suffered similar problems with the battery, two have had to have their monitors replaced, and another one had to have a logic board replaced. It sounds like we abuse our little laptops, but we're extremely gentle with them and take great care of them. In fact, one of the Geniuses at the Apple Store complimented me with how excellent the condition was of mine. So are we just unlucky with our products? Or is this common out there too? I'm starting to wonder if it's even worth getting a new MBP eventually, as my faith in Apple is declining. Apple products didn't used to be like this. My 400 Mhz G4 is still in AMAZING shape and running terrifically. Sigh.
