Sick Mac

My computer ("Mac") has been sick for a while. Well, since I got it really in June. The evil X showed up in the battery icon and the battery would never fully charge. I received a new battery from Apple but after calibrating it and it working for about 12 hours, the evil X was back.

So I finally caught up with the weddings I'm editing, I've backed up my photographs and I'm taking Mac in today. They tell me the turn around time is 36 hours to 4 weeks. 4 WEEK?!?!? Sheesh. I HAVE to have my computer back by the wedding as it is what we're using for the dance. And I'd REALLY like to have it back as soon as possible. I'm already losing out on one editing job because of this (the whole reason for me buying the computer) and I have 2 jobs waiting to be cut. Not such good timing, eh?

So, I hope my Mac will be okay and that they can fix him and send him back promptly. I will miss him greatly but I am looking forward to actually being MOBILE with my laptop. Something I have really yet to do.

I'm sure you'll have it in plenty of time. (usually more like 3 days)
It has never taken more than a week for me to get my laptop back from apple's service dept. I'm sure they say 4 weeks just to cover their butts.
