Apple Dude buys $4000 MacBook Pro. GPU make/model in this laptop is proven to be defective. Apple launches repair program that covers the machine. Apple refuses to fix or replace the dude's $4000 laptop. Dude tries several different ways of getting Apple to admit fault. Apple doesn't budge. Case goes to court, in front of a judge. Apple sends two (2) (twee) (deux) (zwei) (dos) (dva) (dau) lawyers to handle the case. Dude takes care of his own defense, obliterates Apple. Judge summons Apple to pay for the laptop and court costs. During the court case, the Apple lawyers admit openly that replacing the logic board would have cost Apple nothing, since Nvidia foots the bill. Apple paid for two, most likely quite expensive lawyers, to prevent having to pay nothing to replace a laptop. This is pure insanity.

AnXa,

"This is nothing nothing new. Try getting a replacement for a new (one week old) defective Macbook Pro replacement battery. It took months for them to allow me to have a replacement and tons of paper work."

You complain too much, be happy your macbook hasn't caught fire or anything.

Actually having the macbook catch fire would be pretty nice so long as your house doesn't burn down. After all, that would mean that Apple would have to give me a brand new macbook.

And by posting that here any judge will think it's premeditated. Better luck next time ;-)

Keep your macbook in a well-ventilated place. Concentrated pixie dust could unleash a dangerous magic bolt.
