iPlastic: Apple can blow me [Jul. 11th, 2003|02:57 pm]

[Current Mood |bitter]

Apple wants $650 to fix the plastic piece that my PowerBook's lid hooks onto when it closes. (that button you press to open it up)

Um, no thanks. I'll buy some velcro.

Titanium my ass. Surrounding the wireless antenna maybe. In all fairness, I loved my TiBook, but this level of absurdity is offensive.

Update: But at least there's competition in the Apple repair business. Going to some local places to get some quotes.

is it just that much for the part, or the whole cost of repair? there are some pieces for powerbooks which cost an absurdly disproportionate amount of money... i think they put them in so that people don't assemble new powerbooks out of replacement parts, but that's ridiculous anyway, because it'd end up costing like $20,000 with their markup.

this is the reason i always get the 3-year applecare plan... i'm interested to see what kinds of quotes you end up getting from third parties.
