How am I supposed to work? I am a freelance web designer/developer. Apple says 5-10 days to fix it (vertical screen stripe issue has happened three times now and right speaker has gone out three times as well). I am extremely frustrated by the fact that I have to lose money because of their inability to provide me with a quality machine that works. Excuse the vent, I love my MacBook Pro, but am very disappointed by these recurring problems and the only option I have to fix them, which involves sending this machine off and being unable to work for days.
