I bought a macbook in 2009 (aluminium) and the logic board failed and was replaced in 2010.  It has failed again and I have been quoted £300 for a repair.


Does the free logic board replacement initiative (because of NVIDIA chip issues) cover my laptop which is less than 3 years old as I obviously have the same/similar problem?  I can only find references to macbook pros.

    As fellow users all we can to is refer to the announced coverage, which doesn't add to what you already know.  Logically one would think coverage would extend to a replacement board if it uses the same chip set as the ones being replaced...logic does not always work in business, though.  Best answer would come from Apple, press the issue with your history.  Try contacting the Apple UK, since you talk about cost in pounds, and see what they say.  The overall Apple contact information is: if the UK source doesn't help.
