Can anyone recommend a person or place to have my MacBook repaired? Trying to avoid the dreaded Genius Bar. I am in N Raleigh. Thanks!

Go here (http://www.apple.com/buy/locator/service/ - broken link) to enter your zip code and see a list of Apple-authorized service providers. Some are non-Genius-bar locations.

I too share your dread of the Genius bar. : )

Applebuddy! I cannot recommend this service highly enough... he is extremely professional, & always solves all my problems & questions. Much more efficient than the Genius Bar!

Hmm...I know that Apple just had a recall for video problems with certain nvidia cards. I had good luck sending my laptop into Apple for service rather than go to a store. They sent me a prepaid box, and I sent it to them. Got it back in a couple days. This was warranty work though.
