So one day, my mid 2012 rMBP just stops showing video. It's so damn quiet I can't tell if it's dead, or not showing video, if the battery is dead etc. So I take it to apple, and the tech says, the screen is dead, the computer boots up, fans run, etc. and it's going to be like $1100 to fix (or something). I'm like okay, well if it's the led the external display should work right? He says it should (well you didn't test this? Lol). So he brings out a monitor to hook up and of course it doesn't work (nice, saved me a grand). My friend repairs electronics (iphones, TVs, laptops) so I figure, I'll go buy my own screen and have him replace it and see if that works (although it shouldn't, since no video was even coming out of the external port). But it was worth a shot. When researching he finds this: https://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro-videoissues/ I thought I was good to go! Even called Apple Support and they said yeah, bring it in. So I do. Apple tech says that extended program also ended But they can do a complete repair for $5xx (I forget the exact amount). I've never heard about that before. They said they'll repair anything and everything that needs repairing. My battery was kind of sucking. Machine ran hot and fans ran a lot. Clean installed a new OS but was getting constant freezing etc. Keyboard was clicking in one corner (kids dropped it probably) What do you guys think? It's the most fully loaded rMBP they offered. I don't do anything vigorous on my laptop, I remote into my desktop via Splashtop. My heavy duty work is done on my Windows desktops. What if I pay it and they won't replace the battery because it doesn't qualify as needing repair? The Computer would just shut off at 30% saying low battery. But plug it in and it's 30% or more.
