What if new models would have a possible failure (a la nvidia 8600)?

    Hello. I am waiting (as many people) for new models. In fact, I've bought a refurbished MBP 5 days ago. I have a new point of view: the posibility of a failure of any component, as with the nvidia 8600. I don't know it that problem was apple specific or not. For example, if there would be any refresh this tuesday (I don't say yes or no), I'd probably wait 1-2 weeks more before to buy the new one (yes, I'd be out of the 14 days return period, so I'll keep my refurb mac, but for people that haven't bought it, this can be interesting).

    The 8600 problem was a massive problem related to manufacturing by NVIDIA. It won't happen again.

    the complementary 1 year apple care should suffice. Even then, it's silly to worry about these things when apple has historically addressed these issues for no additional cost to the user (i think). relax.

    Personally I wouldn't worry about it, if its a widespread problem and loads start failing then I can imagine apple doing something about it. If you want to be cautious, get applecare and you will be fine for 3 years at least! [​IMG]
