    You can service more than realized with Macs.. part of it is having the tools and balls to do it.

    Sure my 27" iMac is a lot more work to take apart.. but once Applecare is done it's about getting a price quote from them, then comparing the DIY route.. No, not as easy as taking apart a typical Antec case for a PC or whatever but after doing that for 10-20 years I'm tired of constantly meddling.
    Apparently the new iMacs are quite hard to get into, the screen is fixed with a double sided sticky tape if I remember correctly:(
    Only upgrade I've done in 2-3 years is going to 16GB of RAM. Opposed to a PC where I'd be jonesing for video cards and CPUs like a crackhead every 3-6 months 🙂 Glad to have shaken that addiction!! Yes I know this sickness as well I had 3 self built pc's to look after at one time, time was something I never seamed to have, now with only 1 pc and 3 macs to look after it's bring on the gaming 🙂

    Luckily I have not had to worry about this yet.. I don't remember what year I bought mine but it was about 2.5 years ago. Looking at it I can see it would be a pain to take apart..

    I was the go-to guy for building PCs in my circle of friends/family probably put 200-300 rigs together over the years of varying purpose/quality.. I don't miss it one bit.

    I can imagine after 200-300 builds it may lose its appeal... I don't think I've built more than 20 yet 😄

    They wanted $225 to replace my iPad the baby threw down on a concrete floor and shattered. Ordered the parts and tools through Amazon for like $75 and did it myself one night in like 90 minutes after everyone went to sleep.

  • Just heard back from the company that's fixing my mac and its a new logic board that needs replacing so with a bit of luck should have it back on Thursday, suffering from gaming withdrawal symptoms so it can not be back soon enough.
