April 2013 Weddings

NWR: laptop trouble

Totally nothing to do with weddings here, and really unimportant in the grand scheme of things, but I just wanted to vent a little.

I took my 4+ year-old Macbook into the Apple store yesterday after over a year of it not recognizing it's plugged in (always says it's running on battery, when clearly the adapter is powering it). It's been running fine apart from that issue, so I thought I'd finally see what was really wrong with it. They kept it overnight to figure out the issue, and it turns out I need a new logicboard that'll cost me almost £400. Agh. There's no way we can afford that at the moment, so I said thanks but no thanks and picked it up this morning. At least I know what's wrong with it, but I was thinking it was going to be something like needing a new battery, which would have been more manageable. Like I said, it still works, so I guess I'll just wait and see how much longer I can get by before needing to do the repair or get a new laptop. Definitely not what I wanted to find out a week before our wedding :(

Thanks for listening to me whine.
