The kicker, he reckons, is that Apple wouldn't even have had to pay for repairing his notebook. Nvidia foots the bill, so Apple is being a jerk for no reason.
I am an Apple user, and love the products. Have never had one fail (yet). However, it's nice to know what kind of company they are, should I ever have to deal with this.
I wonder if Apple changed after Steve Jobs passed away, or have they always been this ruthless?
This doesn't smell right.... no one is ever a 'jerk for no reason'. We're hearing this story from Seattle Rex... we're not getting both sides. He's a blogger and I'll bet he has said some things on his blog that have offended Apple. There's a bigger reason here why Apple wouldn't replace this dude's PC. Especially since it's such an obvious warranty case.
No there not free but they also don't cost $200. You want 8gig of ram on your macbook pro, it's going to cost you an additional $200. Want it on your PC, its $40. Same RAM and speed just one is apple only and other works on all machines but apple. Don't believe me, go to apple's site and select a macbook pro and upgrade it to 8 gigs.
An uptick in speed from 2.5 to2.6 is free in anyones world it's called overclock. Not quite what I would call a $300.00 upgrade.
