I am very comfortable being an early adopter. What I am not comfortable with is Apple not standing behind their design / manufacturing defects and claiming no problem exist when it clearly does.

You assume this is my first Mac. It's not. I've owned them in the past, and up until now, have been pretty happy.

Macs are built with the same commodity components as PCs these dayss. They are not better. Only difference is that as Apple's manufacturing costs have gone down because of cheaper components, they have raised their prices to their customers instead of lower them like every other sensible computer maker has done.
