    Hey everyone,

    I've been looking around at laptops recently, but I won't NEED one until summer when I'm getting ready for college. Obviously I'd like to have one ummm now but I am making way with my iPod touch for now.
    However, I noticed some refurb MBPs and had a question about Apple's policy on the NVIDIA GPUs.

    Will they replace the actual GPU in the old MBP or replace it with a new machine?

    If the latter, I may very well take that option.

    "Apple said it will repair at no charge MacBook Pros where the Nvidia GPU has failed, or fails within two years from the purchase date." from

    Thinking they will replace- while a pleasant day-dream- ain't gonna happen.

    They replace the card. Not the entire machine.
