A Handful Of Repairs
Google Images is telling me this is a MacBook Pro logic board. I’ve had three of these. In one computer. I don’t really know what it does, but I know when it breaks, things start working weird. Last week the disk drive on my computer stopped working and refused to give me back a CD that I had put in there. I had to restart and finally it spit it out. Apparently that’s the logic board. My volume stopped working and wouldn’t go up and down. Yep. Logic board. Since this is my third logic board in this computer, Im beginning to think that there’s something wrong with these things.
Now, I catch a lot of crap from PC users saying that if Macs are so great how come mine keeps breaking. And here’s what I say to that. - ”Don’t worry about it.”
Now seriously, let’s pretend that you had an expensive piece of electronic equipment. You with me? Let’s pretend that that expensive piece of electronic equipment was actively working for literally ten to twelve hours a day, and when it’s not actively working it’s thrown into a backpack and traipsed all over the country. Yeah. Traipsed. Now, wouldn’t you be shocked if that same piece of electronic equipment didn’t have any problems?
Now, let’s take that same piece of electronic equipment and cover it under a sort of “warranty” type policy. I don’t know, maybe let’s call it “Apple Care” for fun. Wouldn’t it be cool if all of these little problems that occur were fixed completely free for three years? Three years of throwing this piece of equipment in a bag, in the back of tour busses, cars and airplanes, and working on it for hours upon hours every day from different places all over the country. Sounds like a pretty good deal huh? Especially when these cool looking logic boards go for a smooth $1200 each.
Thanks Apple Care. You had no idea what sort of three year commitment you were making. One down, two to go.
