    it died

    hi everyone,
    4 years ago i bought a refurbished macbook pro from the official apple webpage.it was my first ever computer.after 2 years the hd died just after the warranty had run out 2 months prior.replaced it and then 3 months ago the screen died.so i used it as a tabletop computer ,having connected an external monitor to it.all good.then 3 weeks ago the pc board died and the tech told me i should throw it out,too expensive to fix,and buy a new one.i´m not very happy about all this but don´t know how approach it all.do you think there is a chance of some kind of compensation from apple?i´m thinking to buy a pc instead as it´s left a bad taste in my mouth.any thoughts?

    you are out of warranty.
    if you had applecare then they give you a 3 year warranty and will fix most things, but you are outside that too.

    they will fix it for you, but it would cost a lot.
    you would be better getting a new macbook air :)

    A PC won't be better. I've had my last one die after 13 months. One month after the end of the warranty. For the price of repairs of that PC I bought a Mac Mini. That was 2 1/2 years ago and it's still working flawlessly.
