    Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum!

    I have taken my 2013 MacBook Pro to an authorised Apple service provider to have my screen replaced under the anti glare coating scheme.

    They called me the other day to say that they had looked at the laptop and that the logic board was failing and that soon the battery would stop charging. They said replacing it would be £570.

    I had AppleCare on the laptop however this expired last September. I was thinking of taki the laptop into Apple and seeing if they would cover the cost of the repair as the AppleCare has only recently expired and I haven't had to claim on it previously. Had anyone had a similar experience and had any luck?

    Cheers!

    My advice is to TAKE IT TO A BRICK-n-MORTAR APPLE STORE RIGHT AWAY!
    (all shouting is intentional).

    DON'T WAIT!

    Apple has extended their free replacement for defective displays.
    If you take it to them, they just -might- replace the motherboard, as well.

    No promises, but worth a try.

    Again, DON'T WAIT! Do it tomorrow!
