My guess is around $1000, part+labor. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I'm guessing that's about what it'll be -- and that's assuming the display is the only damage. Sorry. Maybe get a...

I would say the absence of a harddrive is a definite possible reason it wouldn't turn on. If you're dead set against going to an Apple Store, your best bet is to spend a LOT of time reading the...

Well, you won't be able to use the one you bought, no. But you can look at Squaretrade and see if they have a plan for you. You can try taking it back to the AppleStore, but I'm guessing you opened...

I think you really need to continue the archive-and-install. After it started installing, it started writing/deleting/moving files and it's not an operable system at this point. If you did archive...

It sounds like a software issue. If you back up your data and do a new install of the OS, I think it'd help tons. But no, it's not "normal," not with a new one and not with a refurb. (The refurbs...

My MacBook was a 2.16GHz white model. I installed 4GB and the system saw the full amount. It addressed 3.3; I chose to install a full 4 to preserve parallel processing.

I'd definitely say start backing it up. My white 2.16GHz MacBook (gently used and well-loved) chewed through 4 hard drives in its <1.6 years of life. It's about to toddle off to Apple for the final...

40€ isn't a bad price - and it's definitely worth it to have your Mac back in working order, don't you think?

There is no "on" to it. It's not like your window is "on" when the sun shines through it, right? Same deal. The apple is a window; the light is from your screen. The only way to "turn it off" is to...

AppleCare won't cover coffee spills. It'd be nice, but they don't.

Whatever you do, don't turn it on until it's dried for a few days. That's a good way to get it to short some vitals out.

You're doing fine. In the long run, your MacBook will appreciate the care. As to carrying it while it's open, the sudden motion detection makes that somewhat of a moot point anyway, so have at it.
