Stumbled across this link today. Seems like my original ‘help me’ post on the Apple discusions site is getting a LOT of response.. Whilst people await an official response from the big fruit in the sky.. people seem to be holding back on new purchases of the 17″ laptops.
What amazes me in this current climate is that companies like Apple are simply being careless.. there is NO room for errors on scales like this one appears to be. People are edgy about making high value purchases and don’t need a reason to move to another manufacturer.
So the wait for my replacement continues, perhaps it was a faulty batch and it’s all s storm in a teacup.. as usual – time will tell!
