Buy a new ibook.to make some money back sell your damged ibook ofcourse letting the potentila buyer know of the damage and cost to fix.get 300 bucs for it then apply it to the new ibook.you spend a little more yet less time waiting for repair as well the unseen damage down the road.
Hey all. I have a bit of a dilemma that is 100% the result of my stupidity. Late last June I made the switch over to Macs as I bought a $1200 14-inch iBook, with the free AppleCare Protection Plan (I'm a college student). However, a couple days ago I spilled Vitamin Water on my iBook. I know. I did everything I could to rescue it, like blowdrying and things like that. Nevertheless, it will no longer turn on. So I went to the nearest Apple store where they basically told me that I'd have to send it in to the technicians, for a fee of $710 since the AppleCare doesn't cover for my own wrongdoing. Damn. What about my hard drive? It would be wiped, unless I pay $150 for them to take it out beforehand.
Ironically this same thing has happened to quite a few friends of mine, with their own iBooks. We all go to school where we absolutely need to have a computer almost everyday - they all ended up buying new laptops immediately rather than sending them in. Is that would I should do? I mean, I'd have to pay more than half of what the iBook actually cost in order to fix it. Plus I'd be losing an indefinite amount of time waiting for it to be fixed, but my classes and schoolwork won't wait with me.
Any advice on what the best way to go would be? Thanks.
