Yummy Purseness

I had to stop at the Apple Store today because my power adaptor for my MacBook Pro had an… incident… last night.

*sniff sniff* “Hey, what the hell? Why is my leg so hot?”

Over Thanksgiving, I noticed that the wire on the Magsafe had frayed and gave me a hell of a shock when I touched it. I patched it up with electrical tape and planned to take it in to get fixed after school was out and the holidays were over. Apparently the adaptor got tired of the wait and decided to turn into a soldering iron last night, rendering my laptop unusable after the battery ran out.

I’m also having problems with the finish on the case as well as the finish on the keyboard (much like this guy’s), so I really just needed an overhaul.

Luckily, I had no problems at all with the Genius bar, and all items are covered under warranty, although once the parts for the case and keyboard come in, I’ll have to relinquish my computer for a few days. Guess that means I should clear the porn off.

Kidding. Mostly.

Anyway, I mentioned that school started next week, and the Genius started talking about student discounts, which are these lovely things that I had pretty much forgotten about but very nice to have, so I ended up buying an extended warranty for $110 off. Because honestly, the cost for the three parts they’re replacing is nearly $600, and if I have to get them replaced again, I certainly don’t want to eat it.

But the best part is that I finally sucked it up and bought myself that Coach bag I’ve been lusting after for weeks. So, yay!

    I have several letters that have worn off my iBook. How much is a replacement keyboard? Do you know? (I’m afraid to ask. I’m not under warranty anymore.)

    iBook keyboards are less spendy – I think they’re around $100. The Powerbook and MacBook Pro KBs are pricier because they have that illumination thing going on.

    OK, well, as long as I can remember where the letters are *supposed* to be, I think I’ll keep that $100 😉
