The Loser's Mac

The Loser's Mac Mini is dying. The mouse cursor freezes in place as if tacked to the screen, a blue screen pops up and stays there for two to six seconds. It fades and all is well again until the next time, which may be from one minute to half an hour. It's unconnected to anything the Loser is doing and happens whether or not he's online. Disconcerting. The Loser has searched Mac forums and finds mention of it by others, but no resolutions offered. Tomorrow, the Loser will take his Mac to a genius bar at an Apple store. Imagine saying that to someone forty years ago: "I'm going to a genius bar at an Apple store." It would be nonsensical.
