Apple Establishes MacBook Repair Extension Program
If you bought a MacBook in the eighteen month period between May 2006 and December 2007, you may be covered by Apple's new MacBook repair extension program - that is, if your machine is experiencing hard drive issues.
This week Apple has pleased many MacBook owners with the announcement of this "repair extension" for owners of the 13" notebook models.
Apple said the following of its repair extension program:
"If your MacBook was purchased in the date range listed above and shows a flashing question mark on the screen, please take it to Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider and they will examine the hard drive to confirm if it is eligible for a replacement, free of charge, under this program," the company said.
How do you know if you need to take advantage of this program? Chances are, if you're in need of it, you'd already know. If your MacBook displays a flashing question mark on any of the models listed above, your hard drive - according to Apple - "needs to be examined."
Although Apple's program obviously won't extend your standard warranty coverage, Apple will reimburse you if you've had to cough up for out of warranty repairs related to the issues that led to this program in the first place.

ive never had any issues with mine...except when i installed a script written by musclenerd for a root connection to an itunes issue with jailbreaking. i forget the whole reason why it was suggested. but what a holy hell to get my MBpRO back into operating condition. i still hold some slight resentment towards him. *hrrmmm*,,,,god brings back memories...anyways after 2 weeks and more than 8 hours with Apple upper tier support and lying my assphincter off. reinstalling OS and ALL software i got back to normal. thanks Musclenerd.killall Terminal
