So after having my iMac for just over two years my optical drive stopped functioning. Nothing I tried fixed it so I gave Apple a ring as I bought AppleCare when I bought the system. Turns out, Apple wanted me to take my iMac to a retailer that would fix it under AppleCare. Fantastic, right? For most people, yeah, but not for me, as the closest retailer to me that fixes Apple hardware is over 80 miles away in Lexington. So I asked if there were any other options, like mailing it in or anything. Of course not, only notebooks can be mailed in to Apple for repair, not desktops. So pretty much I am going to have to drive 80 miles both ways to have my iMac fixed under the warranty. Thanks so much Apple, you've been a big help.
