Wow :bigeyes: I heard they are fast but this is too hot too fast for me ;) Did apple say what wrong with it?
Most probably power.

Maybe the Mac was configured for use at 110Vac (U.S standards). Could be the power

adaptor faulty or lastly could also be the battery got prob.

Just left the Service center, exchanged the adaptor. Was told at first that they dun have any replacement for adaptor. Told them nicely that this is my 1st time buying an Apple product and the set was delivered to me barely an hour ago. Surely they won't want to disappoint a new user. Anyway they changed the adaptor from another set. Now going back...not sure if it affected the macbook or not. Dun even know what to check. :(

Hmm.... smoke come out from the Macbook itself, but service centre replaced the ac adapter. I don't think your problem is solved yet.

You better have it checked and demand a complete replacement, esp if the smoke is from the macbook. Don't think the adaptor is at fault. Delivering defective products is definitely not "An act of God".

What if your hands got burnt by an exploding Macbook? You can easily sue Apple for causing you harm by delivering a defective product. It is definitely cheaper for Apple to give you a new replacement.
;p

It might originally be an ac adapter problem, but that might have damaged the Macbook as well.

As for the call centres, nowadays when you call those support lines, you never know where the guy at the other end of the line is cos they are mostly outsourced.
