m...we all seems to be mesmerized by Apple's design, if those problematic machines we have were PC, how many of us will still keept them?
I know mine will be broken into pieces by now.
Well, at least after a 15 minutes phone call today, Apple finally agrees to send the replacement CPU to me instead of me caryying the G5 into the Apple store.
My 1st Gen G5 had it's CPU fans, hard drive thermal censor and PSU replaced because it was giving me kernel panic message or frozen screen from time to time, since then, everything went ok until yesterday's CPU failure, I guess if you haven't pay for the "Apple-DON'T-Care", you could end up paying much more for the future repair.
vegac, try asking for a new replacement.
althought Apple didn't fix the problem and the replacement still suffer from the same problem.
I have 2 mini here and one is running 24/7 and are both still live and kicking since 9th of March, so your problem should be an one off, unlerss I got the pre-production minis just like what I have been told with my Made in Taiwan 15" 1.33GHz AL PB.
