I currently have a C2D MacBook (1.83Ghz) which I purchased in February 2007. A few months ago, the display started to flicker. Apple told me it was the display inverter failing, and they repaired it. Then, the handrests started to discolour, and fall apart. Apple repaired that as well. Now, the display inverter is failing again; the screen is flickering, and I've had four kernel panics in the past 24 hours. I'm very worried that things are starting to go very wrong for my Macbook, and my warranty expires on February 28th, 2008. I'm going to take it to the Genius Bar, but do you think that I have any right to some sort of compensation for the amount of trouble this computer has had? i.e. Can I ask for Applecare as assurance against the fact that it's likely to fail again? I know that's probably asking a lot, but this computer has had its share of problems, and I'm quite frustrated with the quality of the machine; Apple's image is tarnishing in my book. (That doesn't mean that I'll stop being a loyal customer though ) Thanks!
