    So apple can't admit my computer is old as hell and dying. They blamed my 16gb of ram for over clocking my late 2011 MacBook Pro. They're replacing the logic board anyhow. So yeah. Just a little annoying and funny

    My warranty ended in September. And had the logic board replaced in October so I'm covered by that.

    Oh I was close to it. But then told the genius I am close with. And she said hell no your not paying. So that's how I ended up not paying.

    Sentence structure makes no sense. Please try again?
    Maybe they just told you that stuff about your RAM to get you to stop talking? Pretty sure that the Genius' get all kinds of geeks and nerds coming in, spouting off about how much more technical they are then said Genius.

    Yeah sorry I was typing to fast

    In October when I was hit with raedon gate. They wanted to have me pay for the new logic board. The only reason I did not need to pay. Was I told a apple genius I am close with what happened. And she decided to convince management that I shouldn't need to pay.

    Yes definitely they were trying to get me to be quiet.

    Don't understand the sentence "I am close to what happened"

    You and me both, sister. This guy needs to slow down on the typing speed and actually preview his posts.

    Yeah. At least they replaced my logic board again. That is all that really matters.

    90% of threads here don't deliver, seems like a lot of young people under 18 asking a lot of dumb questions.




    But genius bar? Have had nothing but great experiences with them

    Because you are not reading the entire sentence -- he is saying that he was told by "a (sic, an) Apple genius I am close with ..."

    Would have been clearer to say "An Apple genius I know told me ...," but it wasn't totally obtuse -- I suspect that I'm not the only one that caught the meaning on the first go around.

    Perhaps unfortunate for the OP, but at least that was a better answer than "I can't believe this happened to me, but ... "
