I took a dead mac mini that's out of warranty (18 months) to a PC/Mac repair shop. They said probably it's the main board which would be more expensive than buying an new one, but would look on a 'no fix no fee' basis. They'd call me if it was taking a long time/going to be expensive. But they've now called to say they've fixed it (blown capacitor and faulty voltage regulator), but it took "ages" to find and want £180. Don't know what to think...did they fix it in 5 mins and claim otherwise, or conversely, look a long time not knowing they'd be paid if they couldn't fix it? But then should I pay because it took a long time? To get a perspective, any idea how much would Apple would have likely charged for such a repair?
