How Many times have you had to send you Macbook back to Apple for service?

I have owned my Macbook for about 8 months now and have had to send my it in for service 4 times. So far I have had my Hard Drive replaced 2 times and 1 battery replaced. Now I am sending it in to have my iSight fixed, over heating problems, and when I have it pluged into the wall it schockes me.

Have any of you had any problems like this?

I took mine in for the palm rest staining problem, but mine was a first gen one. Otherwise its been rock solid. My warranty is up next month and so far I am pretty happy.

I should add I use my MacBook pretty much everyday now too as its my Main computer now. I am now addicted to OS X

No problems - and mine is a refurb.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You should demand a new computer. It's well past time repeatedly getting it fixed when it's delivering shocks.
