#5 mac just f**ked up (apple service tech: "i don't know! change the logic board!")

85% software
15% hardware

and when customers come to me it's allways: "the hardware! i think it's the main board or something".

sorry. but i had a terrible day!

Trust me, I've made mistakes with other computers, but when you buy a new computer and have to do a dozen different "fixes" on it, reformat twice, etc, its highly disappointing. I have installed a miinimum of freeware/shareware. I have installed legit (not pirated) graphics programs on my computer. I don't mess around with parts of the computer I don't understand. I fail to see how this could be "my fault". This computer has been iffy since day one. I have a friend that is a Mac tech and he has been evaluating the info I've been giving him. He seems to think its a bad drive. We'll find out soon enough.
