After about 4 years of good performance, my MacBook decided it didn’t like me yesterday. I was using it without the power cord and the screen went black. I plugged it in and tried to turn it on and this is what I saw:
Paul Baker and a few others helped me out on Facebook and eventually I got super lucky and was able to get to a spot where I could do a backup. But then after that… nothing. So, this morning we headed to the Apple store in Lincoln Park. Turns out the computer needs to be sent out because the microprocessor is DONE. Also, the battery is shot, but I knew that already. I can only have the machine unplugged for a little bit before it dies.
So, my laptop has been sent out for repairs. Not really money I wanted to spend right now, but what can you do? I guess it’s cheaper than replacing the computer. Also? Not really what I wanted to do on my 40th week of pregnancy. Luckily it was a quick trip and I could go back home and… nap…
Hoping that they can fix it and that the issue is only what they determined at the store. Cross your fingers!
