    So I had to send in my iBook a week and a half ago and I got it back on saturday, covered by apple care. They told me at compUSA that I would most likely have to fork over some dough. The screen was almost completly off the bottom, except for the fact that it was still attached (it hung lose) and it would not stay up. So I sent it in praying that I would not have to pay (even a guy who works for apple not compUSA said I would have to pay like 300$) and saturday I got a call saying it was back and no charge was due!!!

    Umm, it was an iBook that had the screen falling off. I seriously doubt that this was a 'normal' warranty issue.

    OP, how old is your machine?

    sounds like he/she had several bad experiences with apple products. guess i'd be a little jaded too if that happened to me.

    Hey, it was probably just a bad hinge, that was very cool of Apple. When I have had Applecare issues, they have been VERY VERY VERY good to me, too. Once replaced a whole powerbook -- top case, keyboard, logic board, hard drive, etc., when I happened to be on the phone with them and nervously broke the ram clip off the logicboard trying to install ram for the first time.

    And it was my last day of APplecare on that machine. That old PB is still chugging along, almost six years old, btw!

    There are many recent threads with him/her griping. Yeah, I'd prolly be upset too, but I doubt I'd be hounding the forums in multiple threads about those issues...I'd most likely be on the phone with Apple, talking with a lawyer, talking with my credit card company or something a bit more productive.

    Search on the name and you'll see what I'm talking about.
