Hi everyone i would just like to share a story with you all. I buy broken macs macbooks imacs so forth. The other day i purchased a imac g5 2.0ghz it had the typical logic board issue of the distorted picture and lines. So i take it to my local apple store to ask them what exact part is wrong with it. Thinking im going to get a run around saying i will have to pay the 600 for a new logic board i was very sceptic on even bringing it there because it weighs so much. Well i did it anyway and he says that it is a 2.0 and its NOT covered under the recall. (what i figured) Then he threw me off guard and said "Well cover it we dont want to lose you as a customer." I was like WOW. I get the call the same night saying its done. Great! Well then my macbook charger broke.........My luck so...... i figure who care ill take it there and try to get a new one (my macbook ran out of coverage in june) I go in its packed to the point there setting up a line. I go in and get my computer (works great now) and i ask is this covered under warrenty it melted out? The guy says what model macbook I tell him a 2.0 core dou. He says sure goes in the back and gets me a new one. So all in all sure i could have fixed my mac but when every one is so willing to do it for free i really saved 800 bucks. My story
QUOTE Thanks

NOTE: Merged cross-posted threads.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
