    I just got my macbook (first gen, core duo) back from Apple Care yesterday. This is the third time they've had it. I take it out of the box, and the thing is SCRATCHED to pieces :ugh:. I get Apple on the phone, and after about 20 minutes of me rippig her asshole, the lady says "Why don't I just replace the laptop for you?" :eek5:

    So I get a brand new Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro (with the fucking Dual Layer burner i've been wanting :hyper: ). It's being shipped today from China, hopefully should have it by end of week.

    Anyway, I had 2x1gig modules for my macbook... will these fit in the MBP? I think the MBP takes DDR2 667, but I'm not sure what the old MB's had. Can anyone confirm? Also, where the hell are the memory slots on the MBP? :o

    thanks LOLZILLA.

    Yes they are replacing my crappy plastic core duo macbook with a core 2 duo MBP. And FedEx picked up the macbook, so it will be shipped shortly. My point of contact @ Apple said that as soon as they see the package is in FedEx's hands the new one ships... from China :wtc: Overnight = 2 days probabily :hs:

    Also, it comes with 2x512, and it has 3 slots. Can I keep one of the 512s and use my 2x1gig in addition?

    hey now, why the hate for the little macbook that you're replacing? show us macbook users some love too. :squint:

    And I'm pretty sure that your new MBP only has 2 slots...not 3. You would have to have one 2 gig and one 1 gig to max out the ram. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. :hsd:

    Why the fuck won't this kind of shit happen to me :wtc: If this MBP ever breaks, they'll probably just repair it with old C1D technology 10 times before giving me a shiny new C2D MBP :wtc:

    Heh, my case has been bulging out for a while, I was already told they would fix it, I just need a week and a half time period when I won't need my computer.

    Maybe I'll get the C2D treatment too. :big grin:

    They had mine three times, and still hadn't resolved the issue. Plus, 2 out of the 3 times, I got it back damaged.

    You're right :o

    Also, no hate... I was just displeased with mine (build quality, plastic, etc...). I should have just gotten a MBP from the start.

    Well, I just called the tech support line gave em my case number. I got this nice guy and I told him what's up, and he said "what would you like us to do about it?" And I said I wanted a new laptop. So he says OK, let me put you through to someone who can help you with that.

    So I get this lady, and the first thing she said was that I had the option to either send it back in or go to the apple store and have them replace my shell (a-fucking-gain). This is when I got furious :rofl:. This bitch was NOT about to have me send my laptop for a 4th time. Ridiculous. So anyway she tried to calm me down by asking me if any of the other issues had been fixed (ass loud thuper drive, laptop did not sit flat on the desk, plus obnoxious high pitched noises coming from it).

    So I just boot up and I am totally aggravated that she's having me check this stuff, and it's just getting worse... it was still not sitting flat, and the noises were still there and I wasn't getting any calmer. At this point, she says "why don't I just replace it for you." And I countered with "as long as it's not a refurb, you got a deal." or something like that. She knew she had no chance, but she still tried to give me the run around. I fucked her up though... anyway, I was furious but I kept it cool at the same time (if that makes sense at all).

    I think I spent about 1 hour or so on the phone in total, including time on hold. Not bad :dunno: I think I made out OK :o

    :rofl: :o

    I knew what she was trying to do the whole time, I wasn't about to let that happen. I guess you just have to be firm with them.

    edit: But I have to see what happens with my current AppleCare protection plan. I need to get with that guy and get whatever is left on this one credited towards a new plan, bc I might need it again later :o
