So, my computer was doing this weird thing where it wouldn’t charge. It would be plugged in, but the battery would drain.
It was almost $300 to send it in for repair. They said it was a logic board (Apple’s term for the motherboard) issue, and sent it back with either repaired or replaced innards. Now the video card isn’t working! I get a good 3 minutes of usage, and then columns of horizontal bars appear on the screen and the computer locks up.
I am just a little confused about how Apple could return my computer in a less functional state than when I sent it to them. For $300. And I knew the internet would appreciate my Rich White Girl Problems.
Just so this is somewhat finance related: I declined to get the AppleCare extended warranty because it was $250 and since everyone says that Apple’s are really reliable and don’t break ever. This of course means that I am a moron and should have done it, since my computer would still have another year and a half of coverage and I am pretty sure something else on this POS will go wrong, jsut after the warranty for the repairs expires. Thus, extended warranties = not always a ripoff.
