I've been having some trouble with my retina display MBP for the past few months—mainly the trackpad sometimes won't fully depress (it becomes very hard to click) and I am getting quite a few dead pixels on one region of my screen. I looked into having my computer serviced while it is still under Apple Care, but it seems Apple would have to ship it off for repair. As a student, this is not really feasible for me. Does anyone have experience with this situation? Would Apple being willing to trade me a refurbished model of my laptop and then ship mine off? If so, would you recommend doing this?
