Throughout the years, we’ve seen some pretty strange things here. There was the guy who had 3 Clamshell iBooks that somehow became infested with roaches, so he placed all the units in the freezer to kill the roaches…then sent the units to us. There was the guy who loaned his laptop to a friend, and his friend accidentally spilled “water” in the unit…that was fine until we discovered it was urine…not water.
We’ve seen units run over by cars and dropped from buildings…iPods that have been washed and dropped in the toilet…Yes, we’ve seen just about everything.
So, I’ve decided that rather than keep these interesting repair stories to ourselves, we’d share them in our blog and call the segment, You Did What!? So that brings me to this week’s – You Did What!? At the beginning of this week, we received a Macbook that had been burned by a candle. This Macbook hadn’t just been singed, it was burned all the way through the plastic and LCD. (Picture below.) That in and of itself isn’t too horribly bizarre for us. More bizarre is that the very next day, we received another Macbook burned in exactly the same way.
Total Repair Cost:
LCD – $149.95
Back Case – $49.95
Labor – $95.00
Total – $294.90
