Logic Restored

He wasn't "Jason": he was Justin and the poor guy had to stand behind the desk that Apple insists on calling "The Genius Bar." He was genius enough to recognize our problem immediately——a disintegrating logic board. You should know that we never, ever buy extended warranties, but when we bought the computer we decided it might be a good idea. So we didn't blink at the $85.94 for a new power supply, $732.81 for a new logic board and $135 for the hardware repair. It cost us nothing. Nada.

Justin said it would take 7-10 days to repair, but as soon as we drove across town and got in the house, he called us to say the parts were in stock and the repair was done. A cheap and easy fix: it's never happened before and probably never will again.
