So I have this Sylvania netbook. It's really cute and small. But I think I like it the most because it doesn't turn off at completely random intervals.

My mac is in its death throes. When I turn it on, the screen stays gray, and I can hear a very soft, regular succession of mac startup sounds.

You can take it to your friendly neighborhood mac store and they can fix it for $50 per hour + fees. If it was a Windows laptop you could just replace the broken part (e.g., a cat hair-filled fan) yourself for like $5.

The guy at the mac store said the damage was so extensive, they'd have to send it into wherever it is they send things, and when /they/ got it, they'd have to fix /everything/, costing me about half of what the mac is worth.

That's terrible. Isn't it not even that old? Like 3 years?

It's two and a half years. But it does look pretty beat up, and I spilled water on it. That's when this whole turning off randomly thing started.

Oh right, that.
