I just wanted to share my story regarding my beloved 2.4Ghz MacBook Pro from May 2008. I got off the phone with someone from Apple Executive relations earlier today who was very polite. His call was prompted by a ridiculously long email I sent which I won't bore you with here. The long and short of it, my MacBook Pro is a shadow of its former self! The only original part is the case. (I upgraded the RAM and Hard drive myself) The following has gone wrong: - Logic Board (Replaced due to 8600 graphics issue) - LCD screen (Replaced due to strange white spots all over) - DVD drive (Died after months of failing to read DVD's consistently) - Logic board (Replaced again, no clue why) - Battery (Replaced due to shut down at 30%) - IO Ports along left side (Replaced to ensure battery issue is fixed) - Keyboard assembly replaced inc. backlight (I didn't know it was broken tbh) She's been in for repair 3 times and each time there seems to be something new to replace! I am glad I have AppleCare, I would be furious if I didn't. The reason I emailed Apple was because an AppleCare advisor was quite happy to replace the device due to the problems but as soon as they realised the computer was being tested (after giving them a call whilst I was on hold), they cancelled the replacement and accused me of lying to Apple! (I can assure you I did nothing of the sort and requested they listen to the call, quite bizarre). I am also awaiting my order for a 2.8Ghz MacBook Pro so Apple certainly make their money from me, £8000 last time I checked, excluding O2 iPhone bill. So the result of all this was that the chap named Matthieu at Apple has specified on my file that the next repair required will warrant an immediate replacement. Not sure to be entirely happy, at the end of the day I just want a reliable computer (Which is now going to my partner). I think i've so far had all the known issues with the machine but if not, i'm sure I will at some point!
