Stories

My Problem

I was looking for more space and extra speed. Plus my old drive was close to 5 years old and had a problem with the drive mapping. So I had to restore from backup.

My Fix

I did my homework so it seemed that I was prepared. The kit had everything in it that I needed. I used superduper to clone. Everything went well and the drive works great.

My Advice

Do your homework before you start, don't get in a hurry and in just a couple of hours it's all done.

My Problem

Couldn't run apps, forget flash and videos and even word processing...

5 year old macbook black was rheumatoid and exasperatingly slow

My Fix

New flash ssd

Doubled RAM

It's a new machine! Extra fast. Very very happy. Will use it for another 3-4 years I hope

My Advice

Online guides

My Problem

The stock HDD that came with my MacBook Pro was running a bit slow and consistently added a lot of heat inside the laptop, so I decided to switch it out for a 256 GB SSD from iFixit!

My Fix

It went perfectly! I followed the guide on iFixit's website and didn't have any problems!

I was incredibly nervous about using SuperDuper, but it ended up being very simple and straightforward. Took about an hour to clone my HDD and transfer it to my new SSD using the external drive kit.

The drive replacement took about 30 minutes, mainly because I was nervous and kept having to wipe the sweat off my hands. Taking out the screws on the battery and HDD were the toughest part. Those suckers are small! But I used the tool kit that came with my new SSD and eventually got it done.

All in all, however, it went very smoothly and was nearly stress-free! I highly recommend using guides from iFixit.

My Advice

The advice I would give to anybody wanting to try upgrading their computer hardware would be to just do it. I was almost going to spend $2,600 on a new MacBook Pro, but ended up doing my research and didn't even spend $400 on a solid state drive and brand up DDR3 RAM (admittedly got the RAM from Amazon...sorry iFixit team :P). My laptop runs better than it ever has and doesn't even come close to heating up as much as it did before I installed the upgrades.

Put simply: don't throw away a perfectly good laptop just because you want some new eye candy or because you don't think you're qualified to tweak your current system. It's a great learning experience and there's nothing more fulfilling than successfully booting up an old computer with brand new parts inside.

My Problem

DVD Drive was not used for ages, so time came to replace it with SSD. Prior to dual HDD, System 250 GB HDD was already upgraded to 640GB, but still MacBook was slow. So I added 250 GB SSD and installed OS X to that disk. Now MacBook is much faster.

I have changed Display assembly on my friends MacBook Pro too. Original one was broken. Now he have got brand new looking MacBook Pro )

My Fix

Installation went smoothly, I used tools which came with Dual HDD Kit. DVD rom connection cable is also working great! I will use it very rarely maybe to burn some DVDs only.

Changing the Display was even easier than installing Dual HDD. I just followed the instructions.

My Advice

Thanks IFixIt for easy instructions and Fast delivery of the ordered Items. It took me only 6 days to get all perts here in Saudi Arabia.

My Problem

I thought maybe the Sata cable was the problem so I replaced it and no change so I finally got the 256 SSD... whoa super fast! Now I'm thinking of adding 8gb memory cards.

My Fix

Easy to follow with the accessory tool kits and anti static mat. Took about 1 1/2 hours start to finish after loading the install discs,apps disc and upgrades. I can still use the old drive to access everything without any problems.

My Advice

Don't delay just do it! you'll be impressed! Feels like a new laptop!

My 13yo son knocked it out so easy!

I couldn't believe how easy it was!
