Back about a month ago my computer decided to stop displaying. Upon further investigation I came across this: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2377 If you read the article, it says that if indeed the card is the problem, Apple will repair it for free. Fast forward to a week ago. My computer arrived at Apple for its repairs. I received a call informing me that yes, it was my graphics card and that yes, "it" wasn't going to cost me anything. HOWEVER, they added that because of the "extensive external damaging" they were going to have to charge me $900. After contacting a few representatives at Apple, I learned what they are charging me for is a small dent on the bottom of the computer and a large "gash" on the side. Now, I know for a fact that there is no gash on the computer and while I wholeheartedly admit there may be a dent or two, my computer is encased in metal, I've virtually taken it everywhere since I bought it (over two years ago), and it has no more "extensive external damaging" than any other well-maintained, metal-encased, constantly-used computer would. I refuse to pay the repair. To me, it feels like a scam. I know I sound quite negative when I say that but it does. And for $900 I could probably get a newer, more powerful computer. It wouldn't be a Mac and that would make me sad, but it's a better financial decision. So I ask you this my brethren of the Mac, is there anything I can do? The few representatives I spoke to basically ran me around in circles. I asked if I could waver the repair. They told me that Apple "has" to fix absolutely everything. P.S. By the way, having the card fixed elsewhere (from what I've been told) would cost around $800 so it wouldn't make a difference. Also, when Apple sent my "box", there was a sheet with a bunch of legal stuff on it. I'm no lawyer but I've read through that sheet as thoroughly as possible. I can't find anything that even remotely mentions them having to "fix everything". P.S.S. Happy new year.
