    I really want it to break. I have applecare until 2011 or 2012, I hope it will die on me by then. I just love the new uni-body design and the 7 hour long battery, I really don't care if it is not removable. Now I am not asking how to break my computer without apple know cause thats called Fraud, am I right? Who else wants there computer to break so they can get a nice replacement? I currently have a Zagg invisble shield on my macbook pro, I also have the incase sleeve on it so it won't break on me anytime soon I guess.

    If it breaks, you'll get the same model back.

    You need to have the same thing malfunction on its own three times, each time getting an Apple replacement. After that and some arguing, they might offer you a replacement, but not necessarily an upgrade to a new model.

    If your computer breaks, I believe Apple would either repair it, or give you a refurbished model of the same computer you have currently.

    Agreed - you're not going to "break" it without Apple not knowing.

    Just hope for failure.

    Be glad you have a much more functional machine, with fw400+800, a full-sized standard monitor connection and best of all a display that doesn't double as a mirror.

    I hope mine never breaks. If it did and I would get an unibody back I would not accept that as a suitable replacement.

    Be happy you have a fairly current machine as well. Others may not be that fortunate.

    To the OP: Apple rarely repairs notebooks that are intentionally damaged and they never repair notebooks that were intentionally damaged for free.

    I'm sure there's hundreds of ways to make it malfunction by poking (shorting things,etc) around on the logic board.

    However just sell the thing, dont be a killer, haha

    Nope on this and nope on getting a refurbished one (unless the model you and they have are still on the market). They give you whatever model is closest to the one you had before. How do I know? Cause it happened to me.

    I had a 1st generation MBP w/ AppleCare and when Apple made my screen problem worse by frying my screen and mobo trying to remedy it twice (along w/ 8 other problems I had), they went ahead and gave me the lowest end UMBP.

    To OP: The only way you are able to get a free replacement is if the same problem occurs 3x within an one year time frame. This policy is written on Apple's site.

    Good luck, I tried to break my 12" iBook for 5 years and the damn thing just wouldn't quit on me. Apple makes some pretty solid computers. :D

    +1,

    To the OP, oh wowsy wowsy woo woo. Boo hoo, my computer isn't super new anymore. Be happy you have a computer that works and works well, there are many people less fortunate than you. You are very shallow.
