Last year i got my 15 in 2007 mbp replaced with an i5 15 in antiglare for free under applecare. This year... My fiancée got her 2008 macbook replaced under applecare with the new 2011 15 inch macbook pro. Basically, the top of her macbook has been continually cracking and she has had it replaced 4 times, after the third they said they would replace it if it happened again. But the fourth time, they told her it was cosmetic and would not replace the white macbook for that reason. Anyways, today, we opened the box for the repaired macbook and went to do a time capsule backup on it, but they had put osx 10.5 on instead of 10.6, so it said we needed to upgrade the operating system. When i went to put the snow leopard disk in the superdrive, it was unable to fit (it was empty i checked). Apple had "fixed" her computer and now it was unable to fit a cdrom in the drive. So we called apple, after an hour they agreed to a replacement. They asked if she used firewire, we said yes (for an external hd). So they said they would replace it with the new 13 in pro. She then asked if it would have two digital audio in and out ports like her 08 white macbook had, because she uses them to record music from her guitar. (the 13 in. has one, while the 15 inch has two). They said the 13 inch didn't, but the 15 inch did, so they agreed to replace it with the 15 inch i7 macbook pro. She then paid 100 bucks for hi res. For everyone who questions if applecare is worth it or not, it totally is, if your willing to call them and deal with them. This is the second computer i have had replaced, and each time I have ended up with a significantly better machine for little to no cost.
