I am posting here instead of posting in Apple's official forums because they've been deleting my posts. Anyway long story short, I have a late-2011 MBP 15". Last week, all of the sudden, my computer crashes and has been unable to boot up at all. I did a lot of reading online and found out there were a lot of users that had problems with their GPU, which required replacing the logic board. The costs for these repairs run from 500 to more than 1000 dollars. When I took my Macbook to the Genius Bar, guess what they said the problem with my computer was? GPU! In fact, when the Genius went to the back to the manager, I spoke with the lady beside me who also had a Macbook. She also had a GPU problem and so did this teenager two seats down from her. I was handed a repair quote of $575, which I did not accept and left with my broken Macbook. These problems have been a very common problem and I feel Apple hasn't taken the appropriate measures in dealing with this issue. If you look at Apple's official forums, there are over 200 pages dealing with this issue. And, this is only a fraction of the threads that deal with this problem. I think if anybody that has this problem and wants to make their voices heard, they should send an e-mail to Tim Cook at email@example.com. With every letter, our voices grow ever louder and it really requires a group effort. To make it easier for everybody, I already wrote a template for the letter if anybody wants it. Just message me. I already did the hard part. All you have to do is fill in the brackets with simple information like your name, date, and case number. And, if you wish to modify it to personalize it to your own situation, feel free to do that. Don't get me wrong. I love using Apple products and I still hope Apple finds an appropriate solution in helping us deal with these problems. I just feel that we need to make Apple aware of these issues and that they are serious enough that they cannot afford to ignore them.
