wonder how many nerd rage comments and debates this will muster.
"PEPSI SUCKS! DRINK COKE!" "NO, COKE SUCKS! DRINK PEPSI!" But so long as you're drinking SODA and not WATER that's GOOD for you, then we're all happy, aren't we? -_-
unless your Mac product is more than a few years old (ie. 3+ yrs old), then they look at you as if you have grown a 3rd eye in the middle of your forehead and are politely advised that they don't do repairs on "classic" products and kindly refer you to a MAC Authorized dealer. Then the dealer will gauge you. #truestorybro.
Wow. Maybe your Apple store just sucks, cause the last time I was in one I saw someone being helped with a really old Apple laptop. I'm talking, like, a Powerbook G4. Circa 2006, according to Wikipedia. This was sometime in 2011.
Honestly, my powerbook is about the same age... & all I needed was a new hard drive... that's it, just a new piece of hardware. They wouldn't even TOUCH IT. They looked at it as if it was the plague and told me to take it someplace else to have the authorized dealer to put the hard drive in *smh* They even told me it was too old for their buy back program where they take old Macs and use it as a credit towards a new one. Though they did offer to finance me towards a purchase of a new one o.O? So, yeah... I just installed the hard drive myself and if it dies again I'm going back to PC's. On a completely non-connected topic, I see you go to UNCG... I grew up in Greensboro just around the corner from that campus over in the Glenwood Neighborhood! Small world, eh?
Small, indeed. Would the Greensboro Apple store be the one you were talking about?
Also, I have a 2010 Macbook Pro, but will be going back to PCs once I can afford a new computer. It's stupid how much Apple wants us to pay for such under-powered hardware.
