    srsly.

    I had a powerbook 15" 1.67 that had been perfect up till the last 12 months or so. It was going in for repair every few months and always coming back with different problems to when it went in, although all the repairs were free etc it was pretty painful. Eventually the service manager at the place told me to give apple a call directly and let them know. I gave apple a call and before I even got around to complaining they had agreed to replace it with a brand new base MBP, new warranty etc.. So for a few hundred more I am upgrading to a 2.5ghz and will def be buying apple care for it... only another day or two now :x:

    Oh and to any other non-intel mac owners: Test everything if your machine gets a replaced logic board, dvi/vga ports, bt, usb, fw.. turns out that apple has no new boards left for most PPC machines and the boards you get are refurbed. When I got the service sheet for my PB back it had taken 2-3 boards almost every time before they got one in it that worked 100%.
