So, my parents dropped my MacBook off at the Mac store in London for diagnostics.
My warrenty expired in October.
They called this afternoon.
I need a Logic Board? (I didn't even know I had one)
The going rate for Logic Boards - $1000!!!!!!
I swear my heart stopped...I'm glad I was sitting down.
Then he goes on to tell me that my model of MacBook Pro is covered by an extended Apple warrenty and they were able to find a Logic board and they are going to install it for me!!!!!!!!!
But there might still be a hard drive issue, they won't know until after they install the Logic board...
Meanwhile, I'm stuck using the IBM ThinkPad...
