I have the 3-year Apple Care shindig. It's not even a year yet, and I've had the forced reboots: grey screen coming down from the top which contains numerous other languages. I thought it might just be software, but it rarely happened, so I didn't care too much. For Christmas, I upgraded by 160GB to 500GB and 2GB ram to 4GB. It's all fine, but lately, I've been getting more forced reboots. I've noticed most of the times, it's when I'm exporting with Adobe Lightroom. Just the other day, the screen started to flicker so I had to reboot. Now my question is, how should I go about getting it repaired. Is Apple anal? I don't really have proof of the screen flickering. I live in Vancouver, Canada, and I don't really wanna drive an hour to one of their retails and get shut down for repair. I also work with photos and go to school, I wonder how long it'll take to repair. Also, how often does Apple give "free upgrade" due to repairs. My old HP laptop had to be repaired twice, so they eventually just gave me new hardware.
