Re: "Sir Jony's juice"
@AC... most of us are not forgetting anything. Your 5+ year old Macbook is nothing remotely like these current models and as completely irrelevant as your toaster.
Apple will not be replacing "hard drives" (SSDs now) in any of these new models. When the SSD dies they will simply bill you for a new motherboard too and turf the toxic old one into landfill or pass it on to someone in the depths of poverty in a country somewhere far from the shiny West which has no health and safety regulations so they can strip it for valuable materials using dangerous chemicals.
Likewise the battery - when it fails, they will just bill you for replacing everything it's glued to, they're not going to try and prise it out.
Just to match your anecdotal proof of Apple providing fantastic value support, I recently had a customer come to me desperate to have data recovered from a five year old Macbook Pro which wouldn't boot; Apple's "genius" had tested the machine carefully and told her it was impossible to attempt to recover any data until the machine had been repaired by them. The detailed quote (sorry, Genius Bar Work Authorisation) from Apple was still in the laptop; they needed to replace the logic board, display assembly, hard drive, top case with keyboard (i.e. the part which is the entire body of the machine). Total cost... £1,149.60 (of which, only £24+VAT was labour!)
I got the machine working perfectly again for about £1,100 less - I did splash out a little and replaced the dying HDD with a cheap but decent SSD. Oh, and recovered all the data from the old HDD first (like any half-competent amateur could have done, it just had a few bad sectors.)
