    Macbook died?

    My 2017 Macbook died. I think. The screen glitched and then it went dark. No pulse. I've run into vid card and PSU issues on my Mac Pro and PC so I'm thinking it's probably one of those. I've never tried to replace parts on a laptop, and frankly, I would almost rather buy a new laptop. Thoughts?
