My MacBook Pro 17' does not switch on!
I have a MacBook Pro 17" 2.3GHz i7 Early 2011 BTO/CTO - MacBookPro8,3 - A1297 - 2352-1
The problem is that I cannot switch it on.
I took it to the Cyprus Apple representative and replace the logic board (this is the problem according to the support center). Problem fixed but after a few months the same problem appeared again. What they told me is that there is nothing they can do,
Apple aware the problem but they are not willing to do anything to resolve the problem. The only "solution" is that they call it "vintage" and furthermore they do not support it any more!
They advised me to buy a new one. So I've spent 2500 euros a few years ago to buy this so called "super tool" in order to lose them a few years later without being able to do my daily work!
Also Apple does not develop 17' laptops any more. Instead of that you can buy only 13' or 15' at the same price 2500-3000 euros! Of course there is no way to buy again an apple product.
Please note that I used to be an Apple man! I have two iPhones, an iPad, the MacBook Pro, For the office 4-5 more apple devices (iMac, MacBook Pro, Apple TV etc).
Honestly, I hope this is not the truth and there is something else you do in order to resolve the problem.
