…Mac fixed!

August 12th, 2008 No comments

Popped into the Apple store on Sunday with my MacBook and presented my problem. They didn’t even question the warranty period. Instead I left the shop about 10 minutes later with a free replacement battery.

Considering I was thinking I might have to pay around 50 for a new one, I’m quite chuffed.

Now I just need my TV licence refund and old flat deposit and I should be a little safer in the money camp.

Broke a Mac…

August 7th, 2008 2 comments

I knew it wouldn’t be impossible, just quite difficult.

However, it seems I’ve broke the battery at least. Technically the die hard mactards would probably claim the computer itself is fine (a fair point, something I’d probably say).

The problem? The battery doesn’t appear to be recognised. Apple knows about it but unfortunately none of those work to solve it.

Honestly, I think i’ll be needing a new battery (99 from Apple!) but I plan on taking it into the Apple store tomorrow and see if there are any other options.

Apart from that, I now have grown a hatred for the MagSafe power adapter.

On the plus side, I did manage to fix our DVD recorder after my mum decided it would be a good idea to put two DVDs in at the same time…
