Hmm... same as my poor handphone, it has a new screensaver. You went to ask Apple Care for the price of repair?? Maybe those stores in SimLim cost lesser, maybe you can try ask.


Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 00:52

omg... looks very serious ;( lets just hope it tides thru sunday first..

its ok nic, album will SELL SELL SELL WELL and then money will ROLL ROLL ROLL in!


Anonymous flora | 25 November, 2009 00:52

Same fate as my old handphone, new screensaver. You went to APple care to ask the price? Maybe can try SimLim shopes, they might cost lower. No harm asking. They might have an old mac case, just need to transfer the boards over?


Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 00:53

flora, simlim repair shops cant really be trusted unless its recommended by frens or u know the shop ppl yourself.. my fren had problems with his laptop, went to repair n it got worst. ;(


Blogger pegg | 25 November, 2009 00:53

bad condition sia.. tsk tsk..
you btr back up all your files and data..


Blogger NIColette LeE | 25 November, 2009 00:54

Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 00:57

wa bro.. When u told me that it's bad, i didn't expect this bad... Biangz... I think i'm gonna be stressed this sun le... Shaitz...


Anonymous nic | 25 November, 2009 00:58

858.. not inclusive of service charge (50-150).. thats why sad.

Sim Lim not trust worthy for mac as mac parts are really like custom build.. and only apple supply apple parts.. so duno what parts getting..

even apple after changing apple screens there are instances mac cant sleep (a friend is doing mac dealership it happened b4)

For mac screens i heard they change the entire top of the mac not just screen..


Blogger pegg | 25 November, 2009 01:01

relax guys!!
dun panic dun panic.
everything will be fine.

and nic, is there any other softwares spoilt other than the screen?


Anonymous syl | 25 November, 2009 01:06

Oh gosh.
May any of you strike toto or 4d soon to have money for repair! Or to get a new one! :x
Is there any way that we can help?


Anonymous Insomiac | 25 November, 2009 01:11

Hee! my mac's half paralyzed..after 2 1/2 yrs.. too fast editing on it.. jammed.. gotta step on it to make it work.. till..... one day, nothing works..

mac is going for a good price now.. I guess it's a good deal to buy a new one. fixing it ya.. cost as much or half of the new one.. hee hee..


Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 01:19

Takecare and drink lortts of water and sings well on this coming sundday ^^ hahas than ii want to take pic wit uue all sia ^^


Anonymous nic | 25 November, 2009 01:51

Nah.. we'll just live with what we have.. no obstacles cant overcome.. once in awhile take a break from chores of life.. breath.. and carry on again.

Quite a blow to me.. coz whatever the screen is left cant see much.. cant do work.. dual screen is CPU and graphic card intensive.. darn lag.. cant do audio at all.. tried. cant.. will just hang and say "system overload".

On stage wei qi gotta control the programs with this view of whatever's left i duno how..

The com fair tml if i'm right starting or thur.. coz my friend going to set up tml his mac booth.

Lowest prices my friend quoted me (cost price for his side) is beyond purchase.. 3k plus for the mac pro.. coz the new whites wont go to 2.4 GHz which mine is now.. they stopped the production of this speed for the whites..

not enough juice and power.. so gotta go pro.. will save up or hope for sponsorship ba..

Basically its a headache which one day sure will have.. com break down or whatever..

Its a headache i dont mind at all if i have the cash. But wrong timing! Just bought a wireless for my guit so soundcheck i can be off stage to hear and rectify issues.. already spent a bomb..

sigh sigh.

Investments for our passion. Stay strong!

Hoping for sponsors.. PC laptops aint strong enough and stable enough to do the live stage thing..

Hope for a better tml!


Anonymous marilyn | 25 November, 2009 01:53

nic better don buy it at sim lim and not worth it if uu buy it and sim lim cause ii kanna cheated before :(
yah yah nic better back up all the files and data and brim it back to the shop ask them to repair or otherwise complain to dem .. hahas :P


Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 01:55

nic, try to see if apple would consider sponsorship !!! i know some bloggers do have sony & others sponsoring them laptops, so why would mac not consider sponsoring a laptop to a band! right!
and yes, com fair is starting tml. till sunday. lets hope a miracle will happen between these 2-3 days yeah!

dont get depressed. we'll feel sad too ;(

im sure sunday will work out just fine.
have faith!!


Anonymous nic | 25 November, 2009 01:55

Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 02:13

Nic, i went to apple's website to look around, and i send a letter thou not sure if it'll be appropriate, anw, i send them an email providing them with an opinion of my own, because with Sony taking their steps into online promoting by sponsoring an online blogger with their newest sony vaio CW, why wont apple consider sponsoring MLB with Mac products to further advertise, isnt it! so yeah, i hope it does get considered, but i think it would be a better idea if you guys contact Apple company directly and see if they're interested in providing sponsorship. i believe the chance of success would be really high !!

i stated the websites of bloggers getting laptop sponsorships, so yeah, i believe Apple might consider i guess.. do contact them and see if i'll become a deal successful! *prays prays prays*

if yes, then mlb will never have to worry about laptops ever again!! wahooo!

Blogger th-JESS | 25 November, 2009 02:49

umm ok, have been thinking while umm, bathing lol [i even shampoo-ed my body ._.]

umm, individual email apple might not take into regards very seriously, so MLB can try contacting apple directly, or maybe dragon one entertainment can contact apple to strike out a deal somewhr.

if not, maybe dragon one can invest in mac laptop and MLB can use it for their music production and gigs, but it will of cuz, be under company's property..

yeah, so anw, lets just hope something work out in the middle or so.

Anonymous Promac | 25 November, 2009 04:08

hee.. now macpro at $1988. or even cheaper at 1849 for student price. hmmm.. but older ver of macpro somehow seems to be faster..

anyway.. wondering how ur screen became like that! seems like squashed or drenched in water.. haha!


Anonymous :P | 25 November, 2009 04:11


everybody for out $3 or $5, at least 300 ppl means $900 or $1500.. means almost enough to get MLB a Christmas present!
Ain't that just worth it? :D

$5 for a macpro each. no pain for all!

i believe things will still work out fine on sunday! at least there's still some screen, can de! i still remember i managed to set a tv programme timer very accurately when my tv screen died and i couldn't see anything at all. navigated my way through the timer program through imagining wads the next screen that will appear after each button press..

jiayou guys, we are always around no matter what!


Blogger Elise | 25 November, 2009 13:48

Nic, seeing the little white pony in this state, am really very xin teng because the same thing ever happened to my old laptop when I slipped and fell down outside my previous workplace during a rainy day 2 years ago. :(

Nevertheless, am praying hard that you'll be able to find the best solution for your mac at minimal cost (even better if it turns out to be at no cost at all...hehe). =)
