    I bought an imac off of ebay, plugged it in and the light on front kept flashing. So I called apple support, they determined that it's a bad power supply. They said that they are too new to order replacement parts to send out to the customers and that my only option is to take it to an apple store, the closest of which is 500 miles away :greddy:

    Seems a little ridiculous that I can't send it in, doesn't it? I'll probably send it back to the guy I bought it from but I got a hell of a deal on it. Do you think complaining to apple will help, or is it pointless?

    call apple and demand they send you a box so you can ship it to them. say it was a gift.

    Where the fuck do you live that the nearest apple store is 500 miles away? There are 3 within 30 minutes or less from where I live.
