    I got the dreaded video issue, no output to either LCD nor External display but the rest of the machine seems to boot fine.

    I bought it on the 21st August 2007... so im JUST!!! within the 3 year extension for Apple to fix it..... got my appointment booked on Friday.

    I am completely lost and gutted, this thing has been absolutely brilliant and I maintain was one of the best releases of Macbook Pro's Apple did.

    I hope they fix my baby :(

    Wow 3 years old....... and it's what a 2.4 c2d, 4gb ram, 250gb hdd, dvdrw drive... 8600GTM 512mb graphics, still knocks the socks off "other laptops"

    Ugh... I hate taking my Apple products in for repair. (Only once, and it was a living heck). But if you're under warranty, they'll fix it. Free.

    Ok it was late, and my maths was a bit out, thinking about it it's only 2 years old.

    My warranty is out and I didn't buy Apple Care because I think it's a rip off. Hopefully the issue is with the 8600MGT and will be fixed under the extended warranty programme.

    I hope they fix it, i'm not too keen on the new macbook pro's.

    Haha when I'm speed reading forums titles I skip ()s and was very freaked out by this threads title for a split second :rolleyes:

    Anyway, if you have a warranty, Apple should be able to fix it for free. Good luck with fixing your "baby"

    Fingers crossed..... nothing wrong with the new ones, I just prefer the style of the non-uni body macbook pro's and the matte screen. :cool:

    Still looking that way?

    Let's hope it is an issue with the 8600GT.

    Yeah because Applecare only covers manufacturing defects, why should I pay for a extended warranty to only cover apple's shoddyness?

    If they don't fix it, it's fine... i'll make a claim on my Direct Line insurance or with my bank who i have insurance with on the debt card I paid with.
