Kudo's to Apple
Monday afternoon I has to leave for an hour; closed lid on my MBP. When I returned, I opened the lid and all was black. Forcing shutdown, safe boot, attempted to start up with DisKWarrior (got stuck in MBP) all failed to work.
Got the MBP into local authorized repair depot (Pixel Creek Technologies) by 5PM. They called @ 8:10 AM Tuesday AM and said the logic board needed replacing. Said that they would send to Apple as they can't touch Apple's price of $390. Tech called today, Thursday 9AM, to say that my MBP was back and ready to pick up.
Total price: $390, just as quoted, and 48 hours (or less), I'm 'whole' again.
Say what you want, but Apple & 'my' tech are the greatest!
MBP, 17", 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo, 4G RAM, 200G 7200 drive, Hi-Def. Glossy screen; iPhone5
