    That’s pretty awesome! Yay for good customer service.

    I did vote that I wouldn’t take an Apple even if it were free, though. I’m too lazy to learn a new OS, mostly. Also, I like polls!

    I have heard they have good customer service.  I am glad to hear this- we are totally an Apple family.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  I’m one of them. Based on their human rights record and the fact that I really hate the OS (used it for a class in college), I wouldn’t want it – even if for free. I’d be more hassle to me than it’s worth.

    I wouldn’t want apple even if it was free… I heard too many bad things about it, how some programs are not compatible etc… nah.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  It’s not that I’m loyal to non-Apple products, but currently FI and I are annoyed with their practices.

    They locked him out of his iTunes acount for no reason, refuse to reinstate it, and essentially stole the rest of the money that was on his account, since he would have to make a completely new account to use his iDevice.

    That’s shadier than shady, if you ask me.

    I voted I wouldn’t want it, but being the cheap geek that I am, of course I’d take it.  you don’t turn down free technology.  Now, if it was free from Best Buy, I might have to douse it in the strongest disinfectant available…

    @mrsSonthebeach:  That’s when you install Bootcamp on your Mac so you can use Windows for certain things.  =) Both FI and I have Windows 7 on it.  I rarely use it these days, but will do so on occassion for certain things.  FI is always on it for his FFXI game.  His MacBook has lasted him almost 5 years now.  Mine is about 3 years old, I think.  Amazing, amazing.  I’ll never go back.

    That’s awesome that you got a free one though.  I know FI would be overjoyed.

    OMG!! Congrats!!! They are known to do things like that!

    I had a similar situation! About 3 years ago I had a Mac Book the white ones (they don’t make them any more they make the Macbook Airs instead) and something was wrong with the memory so it would shut down.  I went through the samething as you I was getting frustrated because they couldn’t fix it. Next thing you know I got a call from Apple, and they gave me a MacBook Pro for free!!!! Which is worth more than my old MacBook, I guess it was an appology gift 🙂

    Apples great about this stuff. Just one of the many reasons why I love them.

    I brought my MacBook in to be repaired with literally one day left on Apple Care and they replaced basically the entire thing in record time. I didn’t get an entirely new unit, since they could fix it, but even things that didn’t necessarilly need fixing (like a small crack in the keyboard), we’re replaced. I left with a virtually brand new computer like 3 days later. It also helps that our account shows a ridiculous purchase history since DH had been an avid user since … forever. They definitely take care of their loyal customers.
