long story short, i took my mac to get replaced, and they slapped me with a £767 fee for a repair. fair enough, it is a early 2006 macbook pro, 1.83 ghz core duo, although a year ago, i spilt milk on the keyboard, which was fine, got the keyboard replaced, and the computer cleaned up, but unfortunately, recently i have had horrifically slow speeds and a horrible grinding noise in the fan. the genius in the apple store (Belfast) told me that my applecare was void because of the milk issue, which sucked, and he then started to explain my options. so, i now can - pay the repair (illogical decision) - take it to my home insurance - go cry in the corner about destroying my mac if i take it to my insurance company, there is a chance they will offer to fix it, and seeing the ridiculous price, they may well just say, go ahead and buy a new one, meaning i would be able to buy a new aluminium macbook under my insurance, which might turn out rather well? tell me what you guys think, is this a good situation, or a horrible one? i say both.
