    For the most part, nothing. There are some people who obsess over these things, who I tend to ignore by and large. Odds are the battery will last longer than you have the unit, so I don't see any...

    He can't, I was posting that on the off chance it might help someone else in a similar situation. And it was FedEx that "lost" the unit, not the repair center. The repair center has the unit now.

    I give Apple until 2020 to become not even a pale shadow of their former glory. For me, Tim Cook is the new Steve Ballmer. Jobs was a technology guy, he understood computers and associated products...

    As dstrakele said, just send me a PM or email with at least one of the past RMA #'s, or the unit's SN. I can look up the full repair history from either of those. Then I can review what was done in...

    Does it appear as if the computer is booting, and you're just not getting anything on any displays, or are there no indications that the unit is doing anything?

    I probably do still have a couple of small physical scars from Apple units that cut me. I remember one rather nasty deep cut came from this EMI shielding they put on the 06 iMacs (the white plastic...

    I can give you some additional details via PM or email, and I know this isn't going to do you any good right now, but maybe someone else will see it. If you're still within the return period of the...

    It could well just be one of those things that ends up being a strange one-off experience, it could come back. For now, I'd say just write it off as a one-time thing, but if it happens again then...

    Store it in a NASA clean room? :D

    Not much else you can do except quickly put it in some reasonably form fitting enclosed space to limit the amount of dust that will get trapped in with the unit...

    Just purely FYI, if you do a screen capture with software, it will only show an issue if the video card is at fault, which is very rare in these situations. You really need to use a camera to take a...

    That's RAM consumption, and Firefox can seem a little piggish at times because of some aggressive caching it does. The CPU column will be 2 two numbers and it's often easiest to click on the column...

    That's a pretty normal variance, and wouldn't be an issue. If the unit is OOW, then I don't think we're really going to get anywhere additional until the unit is taken apart. If it's still within...

    That is an odd one. Usually there are at least some warning symptoms. What were the results when you tested the AC adapter with a multimeter?

    Were there any odd symptoms last night, or even in the days, weeks, months, or years prior?

    And just for the benefit of others who may be run into a similar situation: I was correct. As long as the SN on whatever it is you're sending in for an RMA matches the SN in the RMA ticket, you're...

    That sounds like you've got a bad trackpad, and so probably the best thing to do is just send it in. Though I suppose you can try adjusting the sensitivity levels first, but I'm not thinking it'll...

    If the unit isn't under warranty any more, or you're willing to void the warranty, you can try reseating the trackpad cable. If that doesn't do it, all the solutions tend to point to needing to send...

    New and refurb are completely meaningless terms in the end. What matters is whether or not it works.

    Those are part numbers. But I wouldn't worry about it too much. As long as the SN on the board you send in is the same as is in the RMA, it should be fine. However, I'll ask the cross ship expert and...
