A great saga begins. Ok, here's my story. I finally switched to Apple just on my birthday in late august. I got me a fine Macbook Pro (2.2 SR) in exchange for my old Toshiba Portege M400. I was so thrilled and happy when the ups driver rang the door bell. I ripped open the box and stared at my new toy. Thats the happy part. The sad thing is, that damned thing worked for merely 7 hours. (I got it at around 4pm, played with it till ca. 10pm). I closed the lid as I always do before I go to sleep. The MBP took some time to go to sleep but after a short period the light was "breathing". The next day I wanted to continue my transision but first I got a kernel panic. No problem - just restart. Things happens. But that was the first fault. When I finally got the thing running again I saw that my wireless connection wasn't working. I clicked on the little wireless thingy in the menu bar and nothing happens. The little rotating beach ball appears and after 30 seconds the menu pops up. Strange - but it doesn't stop there. I can't set up a wireless connection. It refuses everything. I type in the correct information (SSID, WEP key), and then again the beach ball for 30 secs to a minute. Nothings works. I tried bootcamp, but that doesn't help. Erase and install neither. So I called Apple, they gave me the standard "have you tried another router? what about no encryption?" blabla. They keep me a full 90min on the line (cost me damn 10 euro!) just to tell me "we are sorry, but you have to bring your macbook to a apple partner in your town." So I did. Three days later I get another phone call (this time from the apple partner) and they say "yeah, there's something defective. Send it back to the retailer for a exchange". I did that as well (cost me another 8 euro). Now the funny part: the shop where I exchanged my old notebook against the macbook tells me, they have to send the macbook to an apple partner to get a certificate that they are allowed to exchange it. That was around 14 days ago. Last thursday I get another call. They have it back and the apple partner they send it to says "No defect". Great! I call apple service again, this time a technican tells me, that he will call the local apple partner, so that I will hopefully get a working unit soon. I'm pissed. I'm sooooo pissed. I paied (minus the exchange) 1022 euro for that thing and I don't even get my free 90 day telephone support! In case you wonder: I registered here just to tell you my story! Anyway, I'll update here, if anything happens.
