Managing Your Digital Stuff - Repairs
http://edu-observatory.org/olli/Manage/Repairs.html



Sometimes our computers and mobile devices need repair beyond
what we can do ourselves. Several have had problems with dead
screens on their MacBooks, took them to the Apple Store at
Jordan Creek Mall, and Apple replaced them for free even when
out of warranty. Others have found success with old (vintage)
computers from 3rd party repair places. One always has to
decide whether to repair or replace.
