happy ending

Regarding to previous post I really got the happy ending. Let us make it settled (who is us here? mac users lah!) At least i got what i want and still have good thing after all of this turbulence.

As the second guy in apple careline suggested so here is the cronologist of the procedure:
- Bring to apple authorised service center. Means pay 74.90 S$ non refundable fee (just to state that my HD dead n i need to replace the new one! without you i can figure it out myself! Excellent job!)
- Call the apple careline and mention your case/reference number. Ask them to connect you to the customer relation
- Ask them for any dispensation.

Yep. After the trembling voice, all the dissapointment speech, holding the call, waiting, waiting. In that very same line they agreed to replace my dead HD with the new one for free. But I needed to pay the labour fee, for other apple care buyers' sense of justice. (I gave up the argumentation in this area, really, u need to prepare all ur goals - you are the lawyer in the court!)

- 100 S$ for labour fee
- all the data inside the old dead HD is belong to apple
- time, patience in each calling hold and calling goin on

I thank to mac user in indo, zZet, and Sproean fellaw who helped me checking my HD (it is the rubbish seagate!)n him, as usual, still concern to give me place to complain.

This macbook generation really has many flaws, compare to its previous generation, iBook with G4 processor. Check this for your information.

psalm 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-
then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

Indeed, i will be the strongest human being walk on through this life if this kind of God is mine.

you are dead

"you and your macbook are meant to be together"

This sentence is written in the very first page of my macbook's mannual book.
I will never forget it.

But hell ... my hardisk dropped dead within 1,5 yrs only. Getting worse since u have to pay the 74.90 sgd for counsulting fee ONLY! Not to mention the recovery data fee (if it can be saved), installation for the softwares, and the new hardisk need to buy.

Steve Jobs, and all the Apple branding marketing crew, you'd better take note of it.
How would u feel if u were in my shoes?

chloe: let us see the happy ending of this case
