My Nov -2012 – 15″ MacBookPro recently developed a glitch, which suggested the video board was failing . Symptoms being broken up display and crashes and where a reboot returned things to normal for while .
Finally it would not reboot – I took it to my nearest Mac Service Center – London Drugs @ Rurhterford Nanaimo. Jason examined it and told me the video card was in fact fried but as it was an integral part of the Mother board he would have replace that 🙂 $ 650 Cdn. plus installation.
I chose initially to not repair but to buy a new MacMini since I have a Mac mini Server version that has done me well . However, on getting Apples current entry model I was extremely disappointed and returned the MM .
I then asked Jason their Apple Tech to rebuild the MBP with a new Motherboard .
When I was called to be told it was done and ready for pickup Jason said that Apple Factory Service had covered the replacement new mother board cost and I was charged only LD minimum service charge of $40 Cdn. for all the work and set up.
Therefore I strongly recommend London Drugs to take care of all yours and mine Apple product Products and Services
Beat that !!!!
