Quote from: Bella on December 29, 2011, 11:09:29 amHaven't called any help lines since, though I once called our local(ish) Apple Store to ask one of the Genius Bar for directions on how to remove a Linux live CD from my computer at boot. Aside from that, I've figured out everything on my own, with the help of friends, or the internet.

Quote from: Red-Machine on December 29, 2011, 05:35:35 pmI've only ever had a single issue with any of my PCs or laptops. The Dell we got in 2007 had to be sent back the next day because the GPU died. There's a guy I know through YouTube that's had a 100% failure rate on every Apple product he's ever owned, and he's been using Apple stuff since they started.
Quote from: Krizonar on December 29, 2011, 05:53:18 pmI have a 100% failure rate with Sony Products. This also applies to every PC I've ever had, including one I built myself, since they have either had a catastrophic level of meltdown or blew up, hence one reason why I stopped even considering them as options when it comes to a main computer.
