It's Apple, man. People pay premium for that.
Get a new one then its so much worth more than paying that million.

But dude, check out iresq.com. I replaced my MacBook Air screen through them and they did a superb job. 8)
Will do asap, thanks. This Toshiba is cramping my style.

It's probably cheaper to buy a new hard drive than a new laptop though.
Yeah. I might find an external hard drive and install windows on that, then make the laptop boot from that.

Speaking of repairs, I might use that site to fix my iPod touch that I found. I tried tracking the original owner down to no avail, but when I found it, the screen was destroyed. You can't see anything, but it detected touch, and the internal speaker still worked. Looks like they have cheaper prices than Apple for the repair too, so I might opt for that instead.

Any way to save money is a good way. Unless it is theft.

Dear god.

And it's stuff like that that only solidifies my position to never buy Apple products if I can help it. I don't mind if others do, but homg I'm not made of money, I'll just go for something cheaper. ><

(I say as I have several Dell computers sitting dead or mostly dead in my apartment. STOP BREAKING ON ME! ;-;)

Only Apple product I've ever used is the iPhone, until it shattered into millions of pieces.

I had an iPod Classic but I rarely used it, so I sold it for some stuff from a friend. I now have only this broken iPod touch.

So... my new years resolution was to be nicer to people, and so I donated money to charity and did the best I could to help anyone in need and alas, I lost my iPod the next day. ):

Sadly, the only things I want in life can't be bought. It'd be a lot easier if I could just buy it. Then I'd have something definite to follow to strive for.

There's a Fossil watch I want, and a red sweater from AE that better get re-stocked or I will level the place.

I'm too cheap to buy stuff. The last "big" purchase I've made was around $150ish on my snake, her heat lamps and bulbs, hiding places, water dish, etc. and that was in like October or November, I think. The rest of the time, I rarely spend money.

The last big purchase I bought was the Wii U, which will possibly be beaten by one of the merchandise I'll buy from Disneyland.
