I wonder if someone can advise of an equivalent for windows.
I have looked at going down the apple route but simply cannot
justify the cost. I would rather put the difference into camera
I understand that entirely - Macs are expensive.
That said their after care is fantastic.
I took my four year old Macbook back with a failed screen- totally black. No warranty - it was 4 years old.
They replaced both the screen, well the video driver and hard drive (after phoning me first) - they said the hard dive was failing and would cost £80 (I had a CCC copy so no problem with backup). I agreed.
Went to pick it up - charge £0.00.
I reckon they are a bit like the Police and they have an attitude test. If you go in there steaming and saying "I paid over £2k for this and you want to charge me £80 - WTF?" They will say " I am so sorry sir but it is out of warranty and we just have to charge".
If , like me, you go in there and say "Thanks for identifying the problem - how much do I owe you". They will say "No problem sir, no charge" and I thank them (genuinely).
Actually that is a prime example of why CCC is so good. I got a computer back with a completely empty (new) hard drive. I just hooked it up to the external hard drive and cloned it all back - full restoration within half an hour.
