    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if someone could give me some information regarding EOL. I purchased my MBP in November 2009, I just read some article on 9to5Mac. I have AppleCare, if -touch wood- it breaks for some unfortunate reason, will Apple replace the parts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. Apple keep plenty of spares to cover their repair commitments.

    If you have AppleCare and the parts fail on their own (ie; you didn't cause the damage with negligence), Apple will repair the computer.

    EOL just means they're not selling them anymore.

    You purchased a 3 year warranty, and Apple will honor that warranty.

    Apple will replace the parts for as long as they have parts available. Being a 2009 model, it's likely they have parts. There are still parts readily available for the Black Macbooks that we purchased at work back in '07.

    They know that people have bought AppleCare, so you can bet there will be spare parts and possibly even refurbs for swap outs for at least as long as Applecare is in effect for your particular macbook pro, if not longer.

    And, in the unlikely event that parts aren't available and it's a covered repair, then you'll likely luck out, because Apple has been known to completely swap out a MacBook Pro in that predicament with the equivalent current model.
