My Mac isn't feeling well.

I have an appointment to take my Mac in to the Apple store on Wednesday. This is my diagnosis, and I hope it is what they find too and can fix quickly: http://www.apple.com/uk/support/imac/powersupply/repairextension/
Not sure if it matters that it is the UK.

BIG challenge here- what I'm going to do for working on a machine while mine is in the hospital. I'm going to try to beg for the floater mac at Luxottica. Basically they are my only client right now anyway, so morally, it doesn't seem wrong. If not that, I'll be working on Greg's laptop at night and will have to restructure my days. And we're seeing what we can do to juice up our mac at home. Greg has helped me greatly in keeping my head with this.

I knew this day would come, but what can you do? I can't afford ONE mac, let alone TWO machines for a backup. My plan has always been to get a laptop in the future, but profits just don't allow it yet.

Well, I guess you must have all the symptoms (2) and the number listed on the site in your post, uh? Not knowing too much about laptops in mac, which would be better or more cost effective, a laptop or one the little self contained mac machines if all you need it for is your work as a backup machine or something you could work on from home when needed?

We're working on seeing if we can juice up the home machine as a back up. Not sure if it can handle the operating system or not. And if the operating system can't be upgraded then I can't put the software on it. :(

I'm sorry to hear your news. That sounds extremely painful, especially if you're having to redo work because of shut downs. I hope it's a speedy repair.

I'm sorry to read out your dilemma, and wish there was something I could do for ya.
