Re: ati card

I'm pretty sure that if you write to Apple and tell them that and threaten to 
bring in trading standards or whatever the equivalent is in your country then 
you will get some more satisfactory resolution. It's not a fair business 
practice to sell you time-limited defective hardware and just keep replacing 
it until your warranty runs out. Make a fuss basically, and you'll probably 
get good results.
