Much to my surprise at 4 this afternoon I got a call from the Apple store telling me the MacBook Pro repair was complete and I could pick it up. I had an hour before our holiday guests started arriving so off I went and picked it up. At the store I fired it up to make sure that it would boot (it would) and that it still had the 3 GB of memory it started with (it did). I brought it home and spent a few minutes to make sure everything was working and all my data was still there and so far so good. I’ll have to keep an eye on it for a while to make sure there’s no intermittent RAM problem still but hopefully all has been repaired. They replaced the logic board with one with the same specs as the bad one and said the repair took so long as they had too many Macs to repair ahead of mine. That doesn’t sound too good and they should be a little more realistic when they quote expected repair time from now on.
