My 17" MacBook Pro had to be sent in to the repair facility because it was literately melting the end of multiple chargers. That was 9 days ago, and they are still waiting for a part(it doesn't say which, though I suppose that it is the DC-in board). Without it, I am slowly falling behind on a huge project for school, and am completely without computers(typing this on iPad, typing or grammatical errors do not reflect my intelligence level ). I'm being patient, and I'm not really mad about it. Stuff happens, but how long should I wait before I am in the clear to call Apple for a better solution? PS: I know that 9 days is not a long repair time. I'm using this thread for suggestions on how long is too long and what I should do when it has been too long.
