    Since i got it, it has given me nothing but problems. The hard drive makes funny noises (popping), The case is misaligned, i have a few dead pixels, plastic around the screen is coming off, applications keep crashing, it can't back up my data. I only got it on wednesday. Is this just a very unfortunate model or are others having these problems. I bought a macbook for reliability, instead it got this. I have to say though, apple is very good and is replacing it on thursday, hope i don't have that same problems, it was not even a week old. What are your worst mac experiences?

    I'd say take it back...

    My worst experience with Macs is having two hard drive failures prior to Time Machine and backing up - that really sucked

    I think you'd be much better off taking it to an Apple Store or calling Apple Care up for your country.

    We'd love to do that for you but it is your laptop. It needs to be fixed! Apple is there to do it right now! ;)

    100% agree. 90 days telephoner back up included. Have you used this?

    Have you been back to the store (presuming it wasn't an online purchase)? Ring.
