Yep, I would only buy a Macbook Pro. Macbooks are definitely the cost saving models->many issues because of the cheaper parts.

I am having similar issues: replaced the top case once, the battery is going, and I have had constant screen flickering problems throughout its life and now the wireless card seems to be going as it hardly connects to any signals, close or not. And of course my warranty has expired so Apple is not going to fix their faulty machine. 1st gen macs just don't seem worth it to me.

My sister is having the same problems with her 2nd Gen MacBook, so i have just ordered a new card for her laptop, and will be installing it soon. You say that you have had to replace the top case of your MacBook, where about did buy/ get the new case from?

I seem to be having the same problem, however I don't think that I would be able to change the airport card myself. My warranty is up however, how much do you think apple would charge to fix it? Should I just find someone who can do it?

Don't replace the card...I've already done that and it only lasted for about 2 weeks. The problem from what I'm hearing is often a bad antenna. Have them check that out too.

does this work on all macbooks? I still have a warranty and apple is screwing me over saying the flickering and airport failure are due to impact. its bull. they say it will cost 747.00 to fix because it was my fault. anyway yes does this work for all macbooks? i bought mine in august 2006. how do you know which airport to buy? please help. im completely clueless about the internal workings of macs.
