I love Applecare!
I have heard terrible things as of late regarding Apple care and screen problems. Well, last weekend a very weird problem manifested on my PowerBook. A vertical band appeared in the middle of my screen, about an inch wide from top to bottom. By wed. the whole screen was washed out and I could barely read or discern what was on the screen. My computer is about a year and a half old, so I was under the impression that my AppleCare period was up. I took it in to an Apple authorized service center and the service guy said the screen would have to be replaced and he could not do it. It would have to be sent to Apple, tier three repair( over $1000) I was upset... two days later ie. yesterday the computer is back, completely new screen and they even put new little bumpers on the underside of the PB. The kicker... no charge, no shipping and handling, and I swear this screen is brighter and clearer than what I had before. Call me elated.
