After only 7 months, I called Apple and they will replace it FREE, but I have to pay 32.00 to ship it. What a racket that is, $32 to ship a mini? I would hope for that price it's getting a presidential escort to and from Apple, with coverage from CNN. Apple seriously needs to lower the price on shipping a mini to repair. I think I may just opt for the $60 Applecare and then totally be covered for 2 years.
