OK. Here's the situation: I purchased my Dual GHz MDD from the Apple Store on July 22, 2002 and received it some 5 days later. On June 28, 2003, my Combo drive fried. I haven't done anything with it since because my time has been limited. Here's the main question: will Apple still honor the warranty (because the defect came within the one year period) or will they blow me off because I waited too long to contact them? I'm betting they'll blow me off. Anyone care to take any bets? I'll be calling Apple tomorrow afternoon!
