help please!
it won't load. i called apple and they told me that i have to reinstall the operating system.
im supposed to do this by putting the CD in and booting the system through the CD (while Pressing the C KEY)
BUT here is my problem
my macbook's CD drive doesnt work so i cant reinstall the os.
i live in europe and there arent any apple stores nearby.
what can i do?

is my only option to buy a new one? (if it is-which laptop should i get -macbook again, the air, or the 15 inch pro?)

QUOTE Thanks

If i am not mistaken i think you can install with one of these external DVD readers you plug in to your USB port.

I am not 100% sure though, so someone correct me if I am wrong
