I've got a 2009 macbook pro 17" with applecare that has in it's first year has had the following issues/repairs. My question is if you were in my position, would you be asking for a lemon replacement at this point? 1. When I got it new in box, there was a nice two inch scratch right in the middle of the left palm rest. (Yes, I should have taken it back then but I needed to use it right away and I had it shipped to Taiwan where an exchange would have been impossible). 2. Garbled video, swapped out a new LCD and mainboard. 3. Battery failure, swapped for a new one. 4. Trackpad failure - twice. Both times swapped for a new one. Both times it was the same problem, a normal click didn't register until you pushed down even harder (way past the original click). 5. The displayport output flickers now when I use the 9400m video card, but not with the 9600m. Haven't had this repaired yet. 6. The LCD flickers at low brightness settings when I type. This is extremely annoying and 100% reproducible. Also not yet repaired. Of course it needs to be said that Apple has been great about all of these repairs, with the exception of number 1 of course which I haven't even told them about as I have no way to prove it origially came like that. And I have used tons of Apple products over the years, most of them have been very reliable. But this is ridiculous no?
