I have a question. I have been thoroughly disappointed with the reliability of my roughly 2 & 1/2 year-old late top-of-the-line 2008 MBP (got it during really late May '09 just before the new model came out). It has been plagued with numerous hardware and OS-related software problems over the years, including currently having its logic board replaced for the SECOND time around due to the failure of the GPU. (so that's roughly 1 logic board every 12-14 months). It has also had its optical drive replaced due to failure. I have also had numerous genius bar visits over the years dealing with issues like OS corruption (The genius bar/myself have had to re-install the OS and do a clean wipe of the hard-drive around 5 times because of this). The computer has also had numerous minor issues, which apple has carefully avoided dealing with after I informed them at the time of the first logic board replacement (such as premature wearing out of the keyboard and trackpad and flickering issues with the screen). I have AppleCare. Do you think this is enough ammo to glean out of apple a new MBP? I understand that they typically only replace after the 4th major repair?
