It seems one of the liquid cooled processors in Erin’s dual G5 sprung a leak. The coolant shorted out the power supply beneath it. Joy. I’d be less annoyed about this if it wasn’t the third time we’ve had a problem with the computer. The first two times, AppleCare replaced everything. Now that warranty has expired.
So, should we spend $900 to fix a three and a half year old computer? Or put that $900 towards a new Mac? An entry level MacPro is $2300. iMacs start at $1270. And that’s before you think about adding RAM.
