So, You Would Always Take Your Ford to a Ford Repair Shop?
What if you found yourself overcharged and/or under-repaired and had to go back again and again because the part was no longer under warranty? Would you want to return to them. At least there are lots of other authorised Ford repair places. But when you have to ship your Mac back, at your cost, and they lose it or "forget" what was supposed to be repaired, what do you do? And you would recommend your client to dump a still durable and perhaps functional machine because it is getting "old" and buy another over-priced Mac because "it can't be repaired? No wonder there are mountains of Macs sitting everywhere on this planet because of this kind of thinking. Yes, and other still functional electronics which any kid in Africa would love to have and could get repaired/fixed by the local shoemaker, are just "dumped". We're going to have to live a failing world ecosystem caused by such thinking. Why don't you do your bit to make the whole world better and get real, that is, real worried.
