Everything old is new again

Yesterday I dropped my work MacBook Pro off at the Apple store. My Apple Care is up in the beginning of February and I wanted to get 2 things looked at. It's hard to believe I will have had this thing for 3 years!

First, my battery said service soon. This is my second battery and the first one was not covered under warranty. I felt like they owed me a free one.

Second, my screen was getting some black blotches on it from what I thought was dirt and grime from the keyboard. Others have posted on the Apple forums that they were replaced under warranty. They not only replaced the screen but installed a glossy one.

I ordered the mate finish last time because I thought the florescent lights at work would cause a glare. I have found that to be false as more of my coworkers have glossy. Things look a bit washed out to me at the moment. Perhaps my other screen began to grow dim over time.
