I am trying to chalk this up to bad luck. I posted a couple of weeks ago on Sunday that my early 2013 MacBook Pro had died unexpectedly while I was doing some homework. I am in nursing school and I needed a computer that could run exam software my school required us to use for a test (the next morning at 7am, plus about 5 hours of homework that was due by that Sunday evening) , and neither my older PC, or nearby family memebers computers were new enough to run it. So my options on a Sunday early afternoon were to buy a new MacBook Pro, or buy something else I would regret buying later (like a $700 laptop). So I purchased a 2017 touchbar 15” MBP with 512gb ssd and 16gb ram. Today, less than two weeks later, I go to plug my computer in at school, and the computer doesn’t start charging. In fact all 4 of the ports wouldn’t charge (one would charge ever 7th-10th time I plugged it in), so I stopped by my local authorized Apple retailer and they did some diagnostics and confirmed my computers usb-c ports had failed, they guessed logic board. Because I have an 8 page paper I need to write this weekend, I couldn’t take the time to do a walk-in appointment at the nearest Apple store, which is 60 miles away, I tried to schedule an appointment, but they are booked out over a week. So I called Apple, and they emailed me a shipping slip so I could return the new mac for a refund, and I purchased a new one from the authorized retailer. The guys from the store helped me out by providing a shipping box for the computer and helped me pack it before I headed to work (working full time and school full time is not fun, nor recommended btw). So now I am the proud new owner of an identicle mac, with slightly less clicky keys, and currently functioning usb-c charging (fingers crossed).
