If anyone remembers (or cares lol) I've been visiting the forum for the past month trying to find advice on what to do about my constantly breaking iMac g5. It's now been repaired by Apple four times. For three of four repairs the motherboard was replaced. The iMac works for a few days then crashes and then is brought back to the Apple Store. Every time we've gone to the store we've asked about other options other than repair and every time we're told that they "need to explore other options first" This past Sunday the iMac broke down again and we brought it back to the store. They insisted on replacing the motherboard for a fourth time. Usually it takes about 3-4 days, but I called today and now they told me that they won't have the parts they need until next week and expect to have it fixed by next Saturday (August 6th) I'm in panic mode right now because I'm a college student and most of my assignments are done on my iMac. Also I'm going back the 19th of August and will not be near any local Apple Store anymore. My 1 year warranty ends in October. What I don't understand is that my iMac keeps dying on me despite the repairs. What is going to prevent it from breaking down a sixth time? What I need right now is any advice on what to do. Who should I call? What should I say? I really need the forum's help right now. Thanks in advance.
