    Hi all
    My MacBook Pro has died (several kernel panics, now it turns itself off before it completes login) and Apple support have agreed it's probably a hardware issue. Luckily I have a month it so left on the warranty so the repair should be covered. However I'm not sure whether to take it to an Apple specialist (there's one a few minutes away from me) or an Apple Store. I currently live on an island without an Apple Store but I'll be in a city with one for a couple of days in the near future. Is there any difference in what they'll do? I don't know if an Apple Store will have a replacement I can just walk out with, or if I'll have to wait while they send it off for repair. It's one of the MBPs where everything is soldered to the motherboard so chances of a quick repair are probably slim...

    Apple can sometimes replace the hardware for you while you wait or give you a like for like replacement. It's better to do it from the Apple Store as it is covered under warranty and you get the customer service as well
