I bought a mid-2012 13" MBP base. Apparently a lot of you think these aren't expensive computers, but a $1,200 notebook is an expensive computer. First, the hinge started popping and squealing when opening and closing. Of course, being bought in October 2012, The entire display was replaced under warranty. Second, one of the speakers started buzzing like it's blown at any volume. I've barely used these speakers for more than watching The Walking Dead. Still haven't had that repaired. Third, one of the metal tabs that hold the return button in place came bent after the display was replaced, causing a loud rattle (sounded like a screw had fallen out) every time I clicked or typed. Fixed that myself, but it shouldn't have been bent by the person that repaired the computer. Now, my SuperDrive won't suck in any disk until it is a few centimeters from all the way inside the computer, then it grinds and spits it back out. None of the recommended resets work. I will be taking it in on Wednesday next week. Didn't know so many of you guys hate the SuperDrive until I started researching about it's problems. I love how solid it feels, LOVE OS X, the keyboard and trackpad are the nicest in the business, love the beauty... but my faith in this computer's reliability is totally gone. I do have AppleCare, but I don't want to keep having to use it, especially this many times 2.5 months into ownership! One of these issues during the first few months of it's life is fine, all parts are not equal and if one has to be replaced, so be it. 3 parts failed/presumably failing and one damaged by an Apple tech is not ok though! I really do hope the rest of the computer lasts at least until the one-year mark, but like I said, my faith in this computer's reliability is gone. Edit: 1/21/13 The SuperDrive was replaced, works great now. Problem is, DISPLAY NUMBER TWO is flickering a bit over a month after being replaced. The AppleCare department is replacing my computer tomorrow, or I'm going to the Better Business Bureau. I need a computer to last me one entire school semester, please!
