    I would like to send my MBP to Apple service as I am having some light leaks and hibernation problems. The problem is I need the device for work and don't have any backup one.

    Does Apple lend customers a replacement device in this case? I don't have AppleCare but it wouldn't be a problem to buy it I guess.

    Do you have any experience with this?

    No, and it doesn't matter if you have AppleCare or not.

    Nope, they do not.
    Best thing you can do is always have some sort of backup if your business relies on the machine.

    Make sure you have a complete backup.

    Apple does not loan machines out. If the laptop is that critical to your work, you should probably have a spare Mac. At the very least next time you buy a new Mac, keep the current one as a spare.

    If you have a credit card buy a new Mac and use it for 14 days while your computer is getting fixed , you have 14 days to return the computer no quetion asked
