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.

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.

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.
