Hey everyone, I've been having a 15" 1,8 Ghz CD MBP, right from the start, bought it somewhere around March 06 – And guess what, everything that could go wrong DID go wrong. It was my first Mac and I spend (for my financial circumstances at the time) a lot of money on it, so it was VERY frustrating for me to bring it in more than 5 times because of: - Both fans started making noises (One died really spectacular) - The screen got filled with funny dots (screen replaced) - The battery bulged (Must have been one of this explosive ones) - The next battery just stopped working - The lid-close-button got stuck - It made a whining Noise until the Logicboard was replaced - The pins of the macsafe-powercord got stuck... ...and not to mention the aluminium started to get tiny little dots (not covered by the guarantee) and the service at the local store (not an offical apple store, but the only apple reseller in germany beside the apple online store) was more like getting beaten very hard with your laptop everytime I came in. But...long story short, I love this computer because even though it broke more often than Steve Jobs said "Boom" during the Intel-Mac-Announcement, it didn't manage to brake my heart, so by now I want a new one and this time I'm planning big: I want the 17", High-Res-Glossy, Top-of the Line thing with the best configuration I can get. But please tell me, that all these ****ed up quality-issues have been addressed by now. Otherwise I think I have to invest my 4000 bucks into something more reliable, and I would be happy to hear what that would be.
