Hi guys , been using a macbook now for some time it has to be said that they are fantastic to use.. every thing on it feels solid and well made.
I had been using Pc's for years before I made the switch just purely from a business point of view and fancied a change, anyway about 2 months ago , the keyboard started to play up , in the way that the bottom row of keys would intermittently work
and when I went out to work one day, I came home to find that the casing around the machine was damaged
I ask the mrs only to receive it might have been my younglin
anyway I contacted apple to see about repair and they referred me to a apple repair centre
I phoned them and explained the problem and have said that roughly it would be
Two hours labour at £ 160.00 PH
Plus parts, which they would not even give me an idea to the costs ! all they said that I may be better off buying another new machine !! Am I being ripped off or what !!
Anyone know if this is about the going rate or, if you know someone else who might be able to undertake the work for me cheaper, as the machine is out of its warranty
so it does not have to be an approved apple dealer
