White Elephant – EDM #68

white elephant
Thursday morning my screen froze. I restarted and got a blank display. Took it to the service personnel only to find out that the mother board needs to be replaced. I havent even had it for a year :(. So now I have my very own white elephant. The silver lining on this dark and thunderous cloud is that i will definitely have more time to draw ‘n paint!

UPDATE: July 8, 2006: Good news!  I have my PB back in action.  Yay! Took it to the Genius Bar at the new Manhattan Apple Store.  A wonderful “genius” by the name of Arion advised me of a flat service charge option for 350usd.  Sent it in and it was back with me in a weeks time with regular progress emails while waiting.  And it was the motherboard that needed replacing which cost 900usd ++  Since I had almost given up on my PB and had gone to the store expecting to upgrade to another I was happy with the option provided to me.  I must add that I was very impressed with the friendliness of the folks at the Apple Store.  My father who accompanied me couldnt stop talking about them either.

  1. Great drawing! Isn’t it amazing how much we rely on these PCs – I know what you mean by dark and thunderous!

  2. Awwh! Shame about your laptop. Great drawing though. I love the idea of the white elephant shrine(almost)!

  3. You have my deepest sympathy. I would be donning black if my laptop died. It is my little mate!

    Sad, isn’t it 🙂
