I am not really sure what I'll do in the long run as I don't exactly have $1500 for a new computer (and I would like to stick with Mac, even if Mac's branding is a bit tiresome). I keep thinking that one day it will boot up just fine and work again? I am good at this magical thinking! I will also be hopeful that the perfect refurbished iMac will turn up just for me.
