    so i just sent my powerbook g4 15inch 1.67 ghz into apple for repair. they have my status on hold because they are waiting for a part they need to repair it. if in like 2 weeks i don't get it back, do you think i can complain and get a free macbook or pro?

    edit: I GOT A FREE MACBOOK PRO! PICS BELOW!

    I did and got a new imac. It depends on who you get at the store though. I buy a lot of stuff at the applestore and got the guy I always buy from. hope that helps.

    In most states, I believe they have up to 30 days. Anything before 30 days, they don't really have to do anything.

    they will probably upgrade your shipping to overnight, thats all they did for me after they had my 1 week old macbook for more than 2 weeks in repair

    ok so i had a lower memory slot failure on the motherboard, and the battery refused to charge. i sent it in and in 3 weeks they could not have the motherboard ordered. they finally agreed that because i couldnt get an estimated time of arrival, and that their database showed no sign of getting inventory on the motherboard that they would give me the new macbook pro. since i had the updated video card in my powerbook they are giving me a brand new 15inch 2.4ghz macbook pro. hate if you want. i will post pics when it gets here tommorow or monday.

    isnt that what the op had to have replaced to fix the problem with it not reading the second ram slot?

    whatever part they were needing to fix that problem is what needs to be broken
