    What year/model MBP do you have?

    For Mid-2010/Early 2011 15" MBP, the Genius Bar at the Apple Store offers a repair-center Main Logic Board replacement for a few hundred - I was quoted $310.

    Everyone please read:

    My 2011 2.3ghz mbp with amd graphics card needs its logicboard replaced for the second time just in less than 6mo. If you have a 2011mbp with amd graphics card My laptop has cost me a total of $3200 and is collecting dust. This has to be a defect

    branstanka,

     

    Your posts are being deleted becasue of the link to an online petition which is against the rules of the Cmmunitit's TOU.

     

    Also, when we get your link via email, it goes no where - it is not a ocmplete link. Check it and post it again (although it will probably be deleted - paticularly if it works!).

    Thanks clinton.

     

    Yeah, I figured the link was a problem for the forum. I took off the www. and .html so that I could post it.

  • clintonfrombirmingham Level 7 (30,000 points)

    Still doesn't work - just brings up a blank page...

    Unfortunately, that's a very old case and does not apply to the 2011 models.

    clintonfrombirmingham is entirely correct. This is not only an old case, but the judge rejected the action because there was insufficient evidence to proceed.

     

    In this kind of case, a judge will want specific evidence to evaluate; like, say, when a run of 2007-8 MBPs were found to have a problem with the NVIDIA board, and Apple was ordered to repair said units. A judge will have to determine, based on state, national, or even international rulings, whether the issue is actionable.

     

    I'd be willing to bet that your's was an early 2011 15" or 17" MBP. If so, read on:

    I have 2011 15" MBP use it very lightly, had some strange things during startup so I took it to the Genius Bar,they said it was the logic board. I opted to send it out as they did not have any in stock to do the repair. I called AppleCare they sent me a box , I sent it in and had it returned in 2 days. I opened the box powered it up and now it was worse than when I sent it in the first time. So I just received my box and sent it back out an hour ago, we'll see what happens when I get it back. This is pretty disappointing seeing as I have pretty much turned my whole house onto Apple we have 4 iPads, 6 iPods, an iMac and another 2013 MBP.  Luckily I have AppleCare, but from what I have read this is a repeat issue. My brother purchased one and had to have his,replaced in two months of owning it. I have numerous,before repair and after repair videos on YouTube of the issue.

    Just a heads up for Canadian users. NVidia has been ordered to make a settlement.

    LowLuster,

     

    That's all well and good for owners of 2007-2008 machines but doesn't address the 2011 problems (which just seem to continue to pile up).

    And this is only for Canadian users (a “small” part of the whole world). I have one of those 2008 MacBook Pro that was repaired for the NVidia issue; looks like I'll start living in Canada…

    In my opinion, NVidia doesn't make a big effort in accepting their fault.

  • LowLuster Level 6 (12,065 points)

    And neither does Apple. Sure the NVidia chip fails but Apple refuses to acknowledge and take responsibility. After all it was Apple that Specked that GPU. In the car world if a Fault is found in a part that came from a 3rd party vendor the car manufacturer doesn't tell the owners of that car to take to the 3rd party. They FIX IT, All of them, and then they deal with 3rd party supplier.

     

    But Apple only fixed these defective notebooks AFTER they came to a deal with NVidia and then only for 4 years from date of purchase. Then Top that off with they Used the SAME part.

     

    To Clinton. This thread is about the 2007>2008 models.

    If Apple history is any indication, Apple probably won't voluntarily repair a run of MBPs until someone makes a legal challenge - and that requires research, legal expertise, and patience. If there's a problem with the 2011 NVIDIA chip - which appears to be the case - a judge may have to rule on it before the issue is resolved. And before that happens, someone's has to do their legal homework.
