Greetings, I recently had my Macbook Pro, (which is not under AppleCare) serviced by an Apple Genius. The problem was nothing major, just the palmrest on the laptop was extremely corroded and unbearable to look at. It cost me nearly $300 to get the part replaced, but I figured that if I am conducting business on a laptop that clients see, it is embarrassing to present videos/photos etc on such a laptop. Cosmetic problems aside, when the laptop came back, I powered it on in the store and everything seemed to work fine. However, when I got home, I realized the bottom RAM slot on the Macbook Pro was no longer functional. I've called AppleCare and they gave me "complimentary" troubleshooting, however nothing has fixed the bottom RAM slot. They determined that I needed a new logic board. This would be close to a $1000 repair, the agent told me. I really do not want to invest any more money into this laptop, however I would like to know what my options are when it comes to getting the laptop replaced/repaired. Apple did have me sign wavers when I initially had the product serviced, so I think they no longer have liability which leaves me stuck. Thanks for all of your help and suggestions.
