MacBook Pro Lemon Law

I have a MacBook Pro and will be bringing it in for the same problem for the 3rd time now.
It's a graphical issue that has to do with the motherboard and/or the graphics card and so Apple replaces it.
My question is this: If this is the 3rd time I'm bringing it in for this same problem, am I entitled to a new computer via the lemon law of California?? (I have 1 more year on my applecare for my macbook pro)
This is a problem because I can't keep bringing my computer in and leaving it with them for 3-5 days every 3-4 months.
Does anyone know anything about the lemon law?

I pushed Apple to replace an old Powerbook G4 because it would be cheaper for them rather than continuing the repairs. I would suggest calling Customer Relations and discussing the situation with them.

Repair is always an option. Replacement doesn't have to mean a brand-new computer, either. It would be perfectly fine for them to give you a refurbished system, under the CA Lemon Law.
Basically, all it does state is that a consumer is protected from any expense that might be incurred while having a warranty-covered product replaced or repaired, no matter how many times it needs it (while under warranty).__________________________________________________
