I have finally, FINALLY got my computer back! I'm so super excited, it's pretty pathetic how happy a piece of machinery is making me.
Last night I lugged my Macbook into Apple and told them I would like to have it sent off to replace to the logic board. I was fully aware that it would cost an estimated $800 to replace it. The "Genius" at Apple looked at me like I was a moron and asked me if I was really sure that was what I wanted to do considering the same models were now on sale for $999 (I paid $1299).
To make a long story short he convinced me to buy a new computer. Originally I didn't want to do it because I was worried I would have to repurchase all the programs I had on my laptop, like Microsoft Office. I also may or may not have been worried about my widgets on my dashboard...
The Genius assured me that all files, programs, iTunes, pictures and widgets would be easily transferred over to the new computer. I would also be getting an upgraded model (mainly just more RAM), a year warranty AND a free printer (after rebate), all for only $200 more than what I was planning on spending! PLUS... the Geniuses told me to put my old laptop on Ebay and it would probably sell for at least $200! Score!
Now, all I really want is this... so cute!
