I've had my black Macbook for 11 months now (according to coconut battery) and it works perfectly fine. Geekbench scored it at 2668, I think that's good? I just have a few issues: -I burnt our my headphone jack a month or 2 after getting the Macbook while writing music with my old band (I was using a midi controller with garage band and using an adaptor to run the sound out through the headphone jack into an amp. I now know that this is stupid). How much would it cost to get fixed? It's pain mixing anything cause I have to hook up our Firepod and use the headphone jack to listen through that with headphones. Which brings me to the next issue: -My Macbook no longer recognizes my Firepod. The light turns red, then flickers blue for a sec, then stays red. I've powered down the Macbook and tried again, but nothing changes. Is there any possibility that the firewire plug burnt out or became faulty? I downloaded the driver from the Presonus website, but when I try to run it, it just says "No Device" even when the Firepod is plugged in and running. -Lastly, my battery cover is slightly recessed. Is this normal? It just freaks me out when I touch it cause it feels like my Macbook is breaking. I just want to know if there are ways to fix these things myself and/or how much it would cost to get some of these issues repaired. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
