my macbook pro c2d is on its way back from the third time of being fixed for the same thing (recurring, random kernel panics). and to my knowledge, they did nothing to fix it this time either. this is my first mac. sadly enough, i never had any problems with any of my windows computers. in fact, i'm typing on a 3 1/2 year old vaio that's NEVER had a problem. i love os x, and before these issues i loved my mac. but, after my experience with applecare and the frustration of being without my computer for nearly a month, i'm probably done with this mac experience. my experience has convinced a few others who were considering making the switch to change their minds. does an applecare plan transfer if you sell your computer?
