My wife's Macbook Air had a problem with its display Basically it would just slowly fade to black when you lifted the lid unless you squeezed the corner by the hinge. The nice people in the Apple shop diagnosed a knackered connector to the mother board which resulted in an entire replacement of the lid, screen and all as it only comes as one piece. The cost of this was a not too unexpected £388.40, although that did include VAT :-D

I wasn't expecting much as the laptop is just under three years old so when the bloke went off to have a word with his manager I still wasn't expecting anything. Then he came back and said Apple would cover the entire cost ( if that was alright).

I can't imagine any other big computer retailer that would do that for a three year old laptop that by their nature have a harder life than a desktop. I am seriously fucking impressed and I'm sharing that

I want to say something sarcastic, but I can't can't*. That is good.

One of my iPads just died. I used the opportunity to pick up another iPad Air as I am not sure what the policy is in getting the old one repaired as it's 2 years old.

Will have to take it in and try my luck!

They're actually really good when it comes to stuff like this.
I had an old iPod Touch that at the time was about 2 1/2, that while I was on my way to work just white screened. The music was still playing but the screen was all white and unresponsive - I popped into the Apple Store before work and they said they'd keep it until I finished and hopefully fix it.
They didn't fix it but they replaced it for free.

A year old phone fritzed on me and they swapped it for free.

I have other stories like this but they all end the same and the post is probably long enough as it is.


Moral of the story is Apple are pretty awesome for this shit

I also have had good experiences with knackered apple stuff getting fixed, something they're pretty good at, just a shame its a hefty trip to the nearest Apple store from where I live.

I sort of miss them days of rocking to tunes on the bus with my iPod classic (least I didn't have to listen to crying/noisy brats and idiots ranting on their phone) just wish it didn't freeze all the time when I tried to sync with my computer otherwise I wouldn't have sole it.

I think Apple products are a little overpriced. I would rather spend that money on a custom build :)
