So i went to the apple store, guy who was helping me didnt seem to know what planet he was on, let alone anything about macs, but he was nice...i showed him the page MacBook Pro: Distorted video or no video issues and he just sorta glanced at it and said he would take it to the tech in the back...about 2 minutes later he comes out and tells me the tech says "I have a really expensive apple paperweight. It will cost $1300 to fix." and the logic board is the problem and its totally shot.

I went home and turned the laptop on, and went on the mac mini...i saw that the laptop was showing up on the network, i was able to connect to it, retrieve my files off it, etc...

For some reason im skeptical that the computer is shot if it essentially works perfectly, minus the display...

anyone have anything to tell me different or should i try going to another apple store or something since it seems that its a graphics problem and should be covered under this >>> MacBook Pro: Distorted video or no video issues
