    I have a BTO 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo 4GB DDR3 Ram, Nvidia 9400M with 512MB 9600M GT and 128GB Apple SSD ordered on release in October 2008. It has started to power itself off on boot and after having this problem more than once during the last year I'm going to demand a replacement.

    I was looking at, saw the 15-inch: 2.66GHz Core i7 Macbook Pro, and was curious if this model is available in the Apple Retail Store. Please keep in mind the model I have now was $3600 altogether when it was purchased in October 2008.

    Thank you for any input.

    You need 3 hardware repairs before they'll give you a replacement.

    I'm well aware of all AppleCare requirements regarding replacements, but thank you anyway.

    The model should be in store. If you call the store ahead of time I'm sure you'll find out for yourself.
