I bought a MacBook Pro last March. 10 months later and it's had SO many problems, I can't believe it. Probably the most unreliable laptop I've ever bought (but I still love it for Mac OS X). Here's the complete list: 1) DVD drive skipped on brand new movies - had this replaced at the Apple Store 2) The power cord has unraveled at both ends to the point where the conductive metal is exposed 3) My battery has completely stopped working. If I leave my laptop unplugged, it will die without warning at 90% battery life. 4) my screen has black vertical lines on it now (uneven backlit display? I have no idea at this point) 5) The metal case shocks you if you put your wrist on it. And if you are touching the metal case and then you touch somebody else on the skin, it feels very rough (like electrical current is passing from the computer to your hand - very weird) 6) I won't even mention the wireless signal! for some reason, my girlfriend's 4 year old $700 Dell laptop picks up better signals than my $2000+ brand new MacBook Pro. 7) It basically runs way too hot So anyway, the only problem I've had fixed is the DVD. The people at the Apple Store were really nice about it. The others have happened since I've been living in Europe, so without an Apple Care store, my options have been limited. Well it appears that I'll be making a trip to the USA very soon, so I'm wondering... what is the best thing for me to do about this? I only have the Apple Warranty and I'm just wondering what options I have to get my laptop fixed. It seems like there is an underlying problem (possibly that it runs too hot?) that is the root cause for all of these other problems. Is there a way for me to just get the entire thing replaced? Otherwise, I guess I will just take it to an Apple Store and explain EVERYTHING that is wrong with it? Any advice and/or suggestions? Thanks everybody. I don't mean to complain about Apple (I actually love my laptop to death) but the hardware reliability on this thing is a joke. I'm sorry if it came across the wrong way.
