Spoke to the man at the repair place I took it to (apple authorised) who said they had no stock and had to order it. I then found out today that he actually meant apple had no stock, and that I could be waiting weeks for this to arrive.
Is this normal? How does Apple let a whole country run out of a part and not order some in sooner? I use this machine every day for uni work so its rather important I get it back ASAP as I start again next week (on break at the moment). What should I do about this? The store said to ask apple to waive the upgrade fee and get a 256GB module installed instead, of which there is stock. But the people I spoke to at apple wouldnt have any of that and dismissed it.
Do they really expect me to be without a computer for weeks because a user-replaceable part isn't available?
Has anyone had experience with this before? How long did it take to fix? I dont even know what to do, I cant wait that long. I know I sound like a whiny brat, but its one of the few things I use every single day and rely on, not to mention dropped 1.8K on, which is a hell of a lot for a student.
Anyway, keen to hear what you guys have to say.
