TQCers with MacBooks--have y'all experienced any major problems with them? What were they/the outcome?|
I got a MacBook Pro in August of 2013. In June of 2014, the logic board went out. Still under warranty, the Apple store replaced it. After realizing that would have been a $200 repair, I decided to extend AppleCare--at first I was bitter because for a computer that expensive, I'd hope that it would perform better, but Friday night the logic board went out again. Less than 60 days out of my year warranty, it would have cost me $580 to have it fixed...suddenly that AppleCare wasn't looking so crappy.
So, long story short, they're fixing it again, but the Genius that dealt with it said it was rare and the fact tat it's happened twice is even rarer, but he didn't offer any other solution. I googled and some forums suggest that overheating can cause it, so I decided to buy a cooling pad for it in hopes it will help :(
