Catastrophe Insurance

Portables (Apple)

So much for the warranty on my new Macbook Pro. I suppose you could consider it more "catastrophe insurance." I ordered a Keycap for my Macbook Pro yesterday from Mac Powerbook Medic. The keycap cost 8.95 plus shipping. However I found a coupon online for $5 off your order. I couldn't believe that counted for orders under 10 bux! I ended up paying just over $4 to have the keycap shipped to my house. This is what I would pay in gas to drive to and from the closest authorized Apple service cent

Why Apple wouldn't just mail me the keycap still boggles my mind.
