Well, I hope the question is quick anyway. Long story short, my laptop randomly shut down and won't boot back up. (I have called Apple and we have tried every force boot command nothing works.) Suffice it to say, I consider it dead and have been planning on buying a new one soon anyways. The only problem is that I still have some files on there that I would like to retrieve...what is the best way to go about doing this? I have several externals but obviously I can't get my computer to boot up in order to use them. I would take it to the store to have them do it for me, but there isn't one anywhere near, so yeah...any advice/step-by-step guides you can direct me to would be greatly appreciated.
