          In America you have to warranty a device regardless of how many stickers you place on a device that states warranty void if removed.

                  Stating the repair cost would be more than a new one happened to my phone but 70 for a display 120 for a chassis or 180 new is reasonable but talkin about 5k is hilarious... that would be saying apple is even making loss selling them in Shell because if u calculate maybe 3-4 hours of work from someone Trained for it is like 80 Max then you pay die Shopping n Stuff let's say all 300 $ above the own price makes the 3 missing parts like 5k .... Yeah no

                                        Oh please, Apple is not doing something that is not widely practiced. Nikon and other companies have done the same thing for more than a decade. Parts are sold only to authorized third-party repair centers, and you can get repairs on newer equipment only at these centers. This is not a conspiracy to rip off customers, but to make sure they get proper service and protect the integrity of the products. It is quite likely that if "Joe's Computer Repair" could buy parts and do repairs, he might indeed be able to fix a new iMac Pro, but then again, he might not, or he might try to order replacement parts for other purposes. There has always been a problem in the industry of people buying new parts, and then using them to convert or modify machines which are then sold to unknowing customers as something they aren't. Nikon produced a titanium F2 camera which was made in limited numbers, and (at one time) commanded a big price. Nikon also produced a large number of parts for these cameras, selling them to the public. Unscrupulous people bought up all these parts, and used them to produce F2 titanium cameras using earlier F2 bodies. The result of this was a large number of poorly made F2 cameras which gave the camera a poor reputation for reliability, and which brought down the prices of the genuine cameras. Since then, Nikon has refused to sell such parts to anyone but authorized repairers, and Nikon is not the only company which does this. Do not blame Apple for this situation, blame the crooks who work the parts and repair systems to rip off Apple and customers.

                                                          They charge so much because people have emotional attachment to their apple device and want to keep the original computer. If your grandma breaks it cost more to fix her then get a new grandma.

I'm curious to see how other high-end computer manufacturers would handle this kind of situation. Such as razer, alienware, lenovo, etc. Apple set the bar pretty low, so I'm sure even dell could do better.

But I just cannot have yet another 27" screen failure or machine gone weeks at a time for stupid simple RAM or SSD faults. I will never understand WHY Apple behaves like this. That get so much right and yet the biggest, stupidest thing of all. Oh well.
