Took my laptop to the Apple store Wednesday and it was quite the experience. Practically SRO when I walked in. What is this? A special sale? No, I was told, normal for the store. About half the people appeared to be blue-shirted Apple employees. Had a great conversation with the young man at the Genius Bar; he was stunned to learn a pudgy gray-haired woman was an avid gamer. Apparently young men still don’t fully appreciate that their mothers and grandmothers can be gamers, too. Anyway, long story short, the display on the computer was dead. For a couple of hundred dollars I’ll get a new display, new fans, and new everything else showing any wear. Basically a complete overhaul and recondition with 90-day warranty. Seemed a good deal so the computer was shipped off to the hospital and I’ll get it back in a week or so. Thumbs up to the Apple folks; I’m a happy camper so far.
