A cry for help to any geek who might have a bright idea. Mrs CM's MacBook Pro went tits-up the other day, only 1 week after the warranty ran out. The Apple store have had a look and pronounced: Display is defective. To fix? A mere 500 euros. I'm a little miffed; such a problem coming only a week post-warranty smacks of British Leyland... but you buy Mac to avoid this shit (at least in theory). Paying 500 euros is certainly cheaper than a new machine. Is there any wisdom within the whole of Arrse (see what I did there) that could suggest a get out of jail free card?
