Confessions Of An Electronics Whore

I am mesmerized by large, flat high definition screens, stereo surround sound, sub woofers that shake the house and anything that has an Apple logo on it. I am usually beyond anal retentive when it comes to keeping my electronics in immaculate condition. I cringe when the kitty gets too close to the multi-channel receiver or when the wife sticks a greasy finger too close to the 24″ display. Enter this past Sunday. A backpack carrying our treasured MacBook Pro was carelessly placed on the edge of a table in the Boise Airport terminal while Daddy was off procuring himself a Bloody Mary. An elbow (who’s elbow is not important) accidentally knocked the backpack off the table and turned our once beautiful MacBook Pro into a hideous and deformed beast. We still love you, MacBook Pro. Even if you look like Joseph Merrick.

  1. I am sorry for what you have had to go through. It can be tough, but know there are others out there just like you. Only time can heal you.

  2. Well, they can fix it for around 1K. If I’m going to drop that, I might as a well buy a new MacBook. I had the hipster fucks up at the Apple Store run a diagnostic on it and everything works fine. She just looks all busted up. Like Ci$co’s Mom.

  3. Broz- try the MacShack up on the Hill in Boulder. We got our Powerbook fixed there for a tiny fraction of what Apple store former barista wanted. And the Apple guys actually referred them.

  4. The aluminum cases on the older G4 Powerbooks would warp that bad solely because of the heat they generated. Perhaps after a year or so of expand/contract your Pro will straighten itself out?

    Oh, btw, it is always important whose elbow it is when something like this happens. Otherwise, how can you constantly remind them of their trespass and guilt them into handjobs?
