Use wireless networking in safe boot mode

$300 for a new 12" PB logic board? More like $600 plus ~$200 labour, if you're lucky.

Apple offers a flat rate mail-in repair service for portable computers in the US. The cost ballparks around the $300 listed by the original poster.

Use wireless networking in safe boot mode
Authored by: peragrin on Jun 30, '08 12:15:33PM

Last christmas my 12" g4 died of a similar problem the bill came to ~$325 to have the laptop shipped to them repaired and sent back to the apple store in which I went to see if they could fix it.

I bought a mac mini, used target disk mode to backup all my data, and told them that it was okay for a hard drive wipe.

I told them i had 10.4 installed on it that was my only big annoyance as they reinstalled 10.3 instead. It wasn't that hard to upgrade it again.
