    I have a 6 month 15" MBP and its started to go wrong :(

    I have already had a dead power adapter and now I have streaking on the screen (sometimes) and now the track pad button is not working all the time, ie its sometimes clicks and feels broken.

    Would these problems be fixed with apple since it is under a year old and do you think I'd get a new MBP or just this one fixed?

    Thanks for any help.

    If it is still under warranty, Apple are under a legal obligation to repair/replace the part of the product that is faulty. This obligation exists irrespective of how many upgrades Apple offer in the meantime. If they had a new upgrade every week, or month, they would still be obliged, under their own terms, to mend/replace yours as long as it is under warranty.
    As almost every other poster says, take it to Apple and get it seen to. Today's updates are an entirely separate issue.
    Cheers and good luck

    Thanks everyone for words of wisdom, does anyone know apples stance on repair or new. What I'am hoping is they don't repair my mbp and send me a new one :) am I just dreaming? or would they send me a new style MBP?

    Yes, you are dreaming. It's not unheard of...but typically something like this would happen if you were at the end of a 3-year applecare extension and parts availability for your current model were scarce. Other reports have been when users obviously have a lemon and Apple looks to replace the entire thing...but again, with the (I'm assuming) great availability of your current model, I doubt they would upgrade you.
