Just adding my tale of woe to the littany of complaints already out there. I got my Macbook Pro in December 2007 (v3.1, 15" in the UK). The problems started, in my case, with the keyboard and trackpad freezing last night, after I'd spent a few hours playing games (ie hot graphics card). I rebooted and the problem disappeared, though by this morning it had come back. I rebooted again, and this time OSX refused to load, no matter what I tried. I took it to the big Apple store in London, and was informed the hard drive was dead, and that the keyboard/trackpad USB connection was somehow broken, although the Genius had no explanation for why they just happened to die at more or less the same time, as he reckoned the motherboard was fine. Anyone else had/heard of similar problems? It's now in Apple's hands - hope it's sorted quickly. Simply disgraceful that such an expensive machine should die within 9 months of purchase, in my opinion. I might be a little extra annoyed because I'm heading overseas for tomorrow, and I'm having my PhD viva Thursday week, so really wanted to do some study while away. I *guess* I can't blame apple for the timing, but the fact is that it should never have happened at all. Boo!
