Upon calling the store here that does the repair, they finally gave me the good news I wanted (but almost didn’t think would be). The computer was examined Tuesday, parts ordered Tuesday (new logic board), parts received Wednesday and the mounting would be either today or tomorrow, which is when I should have my computer!
Snow Leopard on my own computer tomorrow seems to be the plan now again! I’m a happy puppy again!
Update: Well, that didn’t happen! Computer delayed, the logic board didn’t fix it apparently (I should have guessed since I had trouble with both graphics card) and they are waiting on another part (graphics card probably). Now goal seems to be next week. Dare I get my hopes up?
Snow Leopard was also fully sold out here in my city. Have to wait for Apple Online Store to restock now.
