Evening all, Thought i'd tell you all about some recent events that have happened to me. Lets start with last week, i moved into my new house, but not before buying myself a new 42" LG LCD, it was lovely, 200hz screen, built in wireless. I moved into my new home on the Saturday before, 5/6 car trips and a bit of help from friends later I got everything moved in. I set up the wireless, the new TV, did my first shop and settled in. I spent the weekend relaxing, slowly unpacking everything, it'd been an expensive move, and a busy one (they do say they're some of the most stressful times!). Monday came, and i cooked for two of my friends, we relaxed in front of the new TV, and i enjoyed having my own place with good company. Lovely day, really relaxing, i love entertaining for friends and good food! Well. This is where everything takes a downturn. Tuesday morning, around 5am i was broken into, everything was stolen. They stole the TV, two Laptops, my iPhone charger (!), everything i own pretty much, everything they could carry. I awoke to a large bang, i rushed downstairs and saw the door wide open, and everything gone. I ran outside to see if i could find anyone, no sign. Oh did i mention they even stole my Wacom Tablet? Police came some 10 minutes after, unfortunately they couldnt find anyone. They took a statement from me, I took the day off from work, i was gutted. I didnt have contents insurance, i had moved in only a couple of days before so i lost everything. I can't replace all that stuff, i certainly won't be able to for a while to come. So, that brings me to you guys. I needed to get back on the net at home, money is tight and since i just moved in i wasnt exactly wanting to spend a tonne of cash. It was a toss up between getting a cheap netbook, or a macbook. I decided to go for the MacBook. I searched and searched, i had a budget of £300 -yes, thats nothing, how could i get something for that? Put it this way, i dont actually have money to eat now, since this was the *last* of my money till i get paid at the end of this month. I was patient, and within about two days i found a MB. It was a Dual Core 1.83, it had 1GB Ram, 160GB HDD. It suffered from the dreaded 'crackbook' cracks that the 2007 models had. I bought it for £290, i made a 'best offer' and the chap accepted it. I was very happy. It arrived a few days later, it had cracks near the track pad, which kinda sucked. Before it arrived i did a bit of searching on the internet and came across the MacRumours community, you guys! I lurked around the MB section, and noticed Apple were repairing the MB's for free! As soon as it arrived i took it up to my local Apple store (Bath, UK). They replaced the trackpad, uppercase and keyboard completely free for me, within about 25 minutes. To say i was happy was an understatement. Amazing customer service, the MB is over 3 years old and they still repaired it for me, for free! Impressed! To top it off, one of the guys at work gave me 2GB of RAM, so now ive upped the spec slightly So thanks really to you guys, you helped me feel a little more happier with my MB and the ****** situation i had to go through, i wouldnt have known about the free repairs if it wasn't for you guys. Im new to Apple, so im sure i'll need lots of help along the way, but im learning fast. So, ive got no money, my house has nothing in it and has been cleared out, which sucks, i can't afford food. BUT, i now have a nice little MacBook, parts replaced by Apple for free (thanks to you guys) that runs really well and has kept my sanity at home. Kudos to you guys and Apple.
