For some strange reason, my blog is becoming more and more anti-Apple with each passing day. Or maybe it's really just a bad year for Apple. (Hopefully the surprise announcement this week will change things around.)
In the meantime, if you're having problems with your new MacBook, you might want to visit this page to find out how to fix the problem without sending the unit to your local Apple Center. Or at least inform you when you should send it to the Apple Center.
