Re: eco-friendly lead-free solder, heh?
>Not sure why a big company like Apple still uses a solder that means people will have to buy replacement computers every 2 years. Oh wait a minute...
In England and Wales we have the Sale of Goods Act which is rather more generous than EU minimums....Apple computers (also iPhones & iPads) have a Statutory Warranty of 6 years in respect of hardware failure - except batteries which they can charge you to replace after a 'reasonable' period.
In a true masterpiece of jujitsu marketing they point this out to UK consumers (the law requires it) before going on to sell them AppleCare anyway: http://www.apple.com/uk/legal/statutory-warranty/
