This morning, the Apple Store called to let me know that my iMac had been repaired. And a great cheer was heard from the crowd!
So what was wrong?
As expected, they replaced the video card — that wasn’t hard to predict given what I saw, and all the testing I did. However, they also replaced an IR board. Now, I was unaware that the iMac had IR, so that acronym may stand for something else.
And, it was all covered under warranty, which is terrific. However, had I had to play for it, the repairs were just under $250, which I don’t consider bad at all considering the complexity of this machine. I would’ve guessed that it could’ve easily been upwards of half a grand.
So… I guess now AppleCare is on my list before my warranty expires in May!
