Blown Motherboard and failing video card.Whats my next move?
Authored by: Imacusuck on May 04, '11 06:05:08AM

I bought an Imac 24", because it was user friendly and attractive, everything a gal could ask for. Three years later (2009)i started seeing multicolored specs on the screen, and it started shutting down more and more often. Apple store checked it out said I the motherboard overheated and i need a new video card, about $1000. He said you might as well buy a new one. I said why so it could crap out on me in 3years and another $2300 down the drain. He told me im lucky that i had the computer for four years and that thats the average life of them.Like its all a game to Apple!

So, what do i do? i have a Imac that wont stay on longer than it takes the screen to light up (that veil comes down and tells me to restart). All my information, pictures everything is trapped in this piece of crap and i'm NOT willing to buy another Imac.

Do I pay $1000 to Apple Service to get maybe 2 more years out of it?

Or, do IGet my info backed up and send this piece of Crap back to Apple Headquarters with a nice juicy letter on how much they inconvenienced me and that APPLE SUCKS (even though i was their biggest fan when i purchased it). And that making something that breaks down shortly after it's warrantee is intentional fraud and to do nothing about it is pathetic!! We are not all made of money and even if we were, it did not say on the product " disposable Imac computer". I'm soo frustrated, I could fly to their Headquarters and give them a piece of my mind!
