Thread: I'm in a perdicament....

  1. #1

    I'm in a perdicament....

    Recently, the LED screen on my Macbook cracked (see picture below) So for my birthday, my parents offered to either 1. Buy me a brand new computer for $500 or less, it would obviously not be a Mac 2. Fix the LED screen on my Macbook, which would cost roughly $300. SO I don't know what to choose. In June I'll of had this Macbook for 3 years. BUT if you've had a Mac before, and afterwards have used a PC, you know the Mac is better. On the other hand it is 3 years old, and IDK if it's worth spending $300 on if it's gonna be useless in a few months due to old age. I need help on deciding what to choose.

    Your first problem was buying a mac lol.


    Jk, but really you only need a mac if you're designing, PC's are better for everything else. Trufaxbruh.

    I enjoy my Mac. There's way too much setup when you first get a PC. IDK, unless there's an amazing PC out there for $500 or less that I dont know about...i'll probably just keep my Macbook

    I used PCs all my life until I got a Mac for college and you're right, once you get used to using a Mac PCs feel terrible. I say fix the screen.

    Yeah just fix the screen. Macs are a decent system, although i prefer windows os, and you probably won't find one better than that for less than 500.

    That was my thought. All the "decent" PCs in my opinion, are made by Dell..and most Dell's, good ones anyway, aren't less than $500. But Kyle there's a place here in Boise called "Mac World" he said it's $200 for the screen, and about $100 for the labor. Advice, never ask Apple how much it's gonna be to fix something cause it'll always be expensive as hell. Look for computer repair shops in your area on yellowpages.com and give em a call. I can almost guarantee you you'll get it fixed for less than $600...and you won't have to ship it anywhere.

    I just like how easy it is to use my Macbook. Like I said, PC's take way too much time to set up and be able to use...but with my Macbook I was using it with in 2 minutes of taking it out of the box. Plus I don't feel like learning how to use a whole nother computer when I know how to use pretty much every feature on my Macbook.
