    Computer broken tips?

    So as many of you know last weekend my computer had an unfortunate liquid run in. Today it went to the apple store where they found the liquid corroding the battery as well as a few other parts. They said they need to send it out to some repair experts and it will cost a total of 755 dollars before tax. The computer is two yearss old and I have not decided if it is worth the money. Any ideas on what to do about this? I need a mac for school.

    I'd just buy a new mac. Keeping your old mac for $700 or spend an extra $400 or so one the new macbook pro. Or if you really wanted you could look at macbook airs

    Oh god, 2 years old? Just buy a new one, bro. Or a used one off Craigslist or something. But I wouldnt let them repair it. Especially not for $750.

    I bet you could take it to somebody local and they could fix it for a hell of a lot cheaper.

    I'd never pay $750 to let someone repair my computer, that's just ridiculous. O.o Go for a new or a used one.
