No, they wouldn't have. You should drop out of college and save your folks (or yourself) some $$ since you obviously aren't learning anything about the cruel real world.

Your an honorable fella. I had a big tip in the oil business here in Calgary and didn't act either. Could have made a fortune. But I can live with myself. I have integrity. Cheers to you.

I'm sure any other company would have looked the other way and fixed the computer for free to retain a customer, but Apple doesn't seem to care. So F them. /rant
I feel lucky. I just got mine back from Apples store. They charge $210 for the mother board and $100 for labor. I was surprised that they give me a new battery.

BurtonAvenger Best investment ever was a 100 bucks back in 1985 by my grandfather on a little seed/electrics/something else. Turned into 50g's by the early 2000's and allowed me to do some cool stuff. Looking back wish I had sold it at its height and put it into either GPS or Apple.

linvillegorge Would it be considered insider trading? Hell yeah. But, everyone who makes it big playing the stock game is doing it via insider trading. It's kinda like counting cards in blackjack. Sure, it's illegal, but it's hard to prove unless you're being obvious about it.

killclimbz Wouldn't that inside info had of qualified as Insider Trading?

Damn if $480k would be nice though...

killclimbz Dang Mixie, that kind of sucks.

Apple isn't going anywhere. I personally would like to see a little more compatibility out of them before getting another product from them.
