Let me tell you my story. On September 17th I bought a 15" Penryn MBP with applecare. The superdrive went after a couple of days and I got it replaced on October 2nd. The replacement MBP had a broken keyboard right out of the box, so I got it replaced the next day. The THIRD MBP I've had since then is ALSO having issues with the superdrive, it rejects cds, dvds, OSX install discs...it happens 3-4 times a day at least. So there is basically 3 options in front of me right now. 1- I ask for a full refund (After THREE MBPs I don't think this would be too much to ask) 2- I call Applecare, loose my MBP for a couple of days for repairs which I can't afford right now, I need this machine to run everyday. 3- I call Applecare, argue with them until they accept to replace it. And if they do argue with them to NOT get a late 2008 model. I'm bending toward asking a full refund, but I don't know how easy it'll be to get. Maybe I should phone the customer support instead of technical support, maybe whining to them would be more efficient.
