Deal me in. The hinge just broke on the wifey's MBA and I have a Genius appointment later today. It was purchased on 2/18/2008. Luckily she hadn't had any of the other problems discussed in the forum. Per the advice in this forum I haven't decided on my strategy, but it will definitely be one of the below. Be aggressive Be polite Be clueless (not hard for me) Get one of the mall hotties to take it in for me (female) Get one of the mall hotties to take it in for me (male - about a 20% chance of success with the Genius dudes depending on the shift schedule today) Go to Costco where the laptops only last a year but are priced accordingly Send in the wifey with both kids (it should take about 10 minutes for the Genius to give my family a new MBA and free MB Pro to get them out of the store).
