    It happened to many of my teammates. I know of at least 3 cases where people on a first-name basis had to redo the TIM (themselves or get someone else to do it) and "void" warranty, because apple support saw no problem.

    But it does happen to Apple owners. And so do other hardware failures. Switching to a Macbook would not eliminate potential hardware issues, statistically speaking it doesn't even make them less likely:
