Macbook Vs. Intel Daul Core IMac (renamed from broken ibook)

my ibook is broken it is set to cost $700-900 to fix and repair everything. it wont turn on or anything.

i am without a computer, i have a paper due in a week but my data is on the ibook and i cant get it out without doing the repair i have no interweb (i am using my sisters pc )

haha, that happened to me too was it one of the old G3's? Mine is now a £1000 paperweight. btw if you have access to another mac you can try booting up the ibook in target disk mode which will allow you to retrieve everything from its hard disk.

moral of the story: always buy two macs - one alone is not reliable enough!

it wont turn on or boot or anything. it is just a paperweight right now. they say (at the apple store help bar) that its a logic board problem and that the bevel needs to be replaced together its $700-$900 they guy at the store said he would vote for having it cost $435 but he was 100% sure he would be over riden and that its not going to be an "in warranty" repair

ugh!!! now is not the time to have a broken mac, with a paper due in a week and the intel ibooks just 3-4months away

if i fix it, its $700-$900 to fix something thats not worth half that is going to be obselete in a few months, and not regular obselete, really really obselete

if i dont, i am screwed. if i decided to buy a new comp. i have to be the already obselete ibook G4, or spend $1799 on a mac book pro!!!

either way i am hella screwed. $700-$1799 screwed

this is the real tragedy! no other mac in which to do target disk mode
