In my previous post I rambled on about my older computer crapping out on me and while it was still scary since it's the second time it has happened I had a better idea of what to do and what the problem was.
That macbook pro was 4 years old, a 2007 model running on Tiger OS, it was about time for me to move on with life technology.
That would mean finally getting a new and very much needed macbook pro, which I just picked up today. Can't lie that I'm excited because I've been wanting the Lion OS ever since it came out!
I'm still getting the hang of not needing to be plugged in to a power source and I will finally be able to sync my iphone to my computer! Yes, all this time I never synced or backed-up my iphone because Tiger just did not accept change.
All that's left to do is to get my hands on the softwares (Adobe programs, Microsoft Office) and life will be back to normal. Blog entries will also be right back on track after that! Aside from photoshop I have no clear clue what to use to resize and watermark images so that's a missing piece right now.
If anyone happens to be wondering about what happened and what I did (for reference maybe?) you can read the grey portion but if it doesn't interest you, just skip it!
Crash Report (hurhur)
I didn't get my macbook diagnosed at Sapura again, because you'll have to pay a diagnosis fee of $80 and I wasn't even sure if I wanted to pay for anything on the old macbook anymore. Aside from repair which will probably be about 1.2k (from previous crash experience) I can get a new set and then have the old hard disk removed and use a mount/adapter to read it. Sapura mentioned that the process of removing the hard disk will probably cost me S$100. I then went over to the Apple distributor (Multimedia, across Sapura) and they are able to remove the hard disk for me, for free! So long as I buy my laptop with them, which was what I planned to do. As for the mount/adaptor, you can get a basic model from CH (2 stores down Mutlimedia) for S$25 because the Multimedia sells the more complicated ones at about 100 plus.
So at the end of it, I bought the mount/adaptor, brought my laptop to Multimedia to remove the Hard disk and got a new macbook pro from them!
While it was a mini heart attack of my laptop crashing, I guess it was about time and my laptop was trying to use some tough love to prove its point.
Thanks for reading!
