Coin

$2.95

Product code: IF145-095-1

Product Overview

Only worth .25 USD as currency, but invaluable when used as a pocket size tool.

Many products have large flat-head like fasteners designed to be turned by a United States Quarter Dollar. Most residents of the USA will already have one of these handy, so this offer is more for our international customers who may not have an appropriately sized coin available, or people crazy enough to pay $2.95 for a $0.25 coin... Of course, that means that for every purchase, $2.70 is helping iFixit continue providing great manuals and answers for millions of people!

Your coin may be any year, it may be new, it may be well used. We only guarantee it's in serviceable condition as a handy pocket size tool, and worth at least 0.25 USD. These quarters are from two sources: our founder's parking meter change stash (enabling him to support local government with parking fines), and from the pinball machine in the iFixit lobby that is set to "free play" but still manages to collect a few stray quarters.

My Problem

I'm too old to toss things out. so, having just heard that my MacBook4,1 is too ancient for Mountain Lion, I cast around to see what else I might do to bring my laptop into the present day.

My Fix

So:

1. Recovered LION

2. Downloaded CCC

3. Bought Crucial 128GB SSD M4

4. Bought Sata/USB cable

5. Bought ifixit 2 required drivers

6. Downloaded ifixit guide on HD install

7.Connected SSD to Mac via SATA/USB cable

8. Partitioned and formatted SSD

9. Used CCC to clone Mac to SSD (includung recovery)

10. Booted from SSD as check

11. Swapped out HD and SSD using ifixit stuff

12. Booted.

GADZOOKS, it all world and Mac is now faster than

My Advice

Take pleasure in doing stuff yersel', let ifixit hold your hand, and:

Toss out your HDs and replace them with SSDs

My Problem

My Fix

My Advice

Nope

My Problem

Roto el ventilador derecho de mi MacBookPro 17", hacía un ruido insoportable, se calentaba la máquina y además de fallar todo el aspecto gráfico y hacer cosas raras como lineas y cuadraditos en la pantalla, a la media hora el poirtátil se apagaba. También tenía roto el Optical Drive desde hace años y el HardDisk de 100Gb iba a pedales....

My Fix

Nervioso al principio... Pero si eres MUY METÓDICO, no eres un manazas, y sigues al pie de la letra las guías, la reparación se hace sencilla y rápida... Yo tardé alrededor de una hora y ningún problema...

My Advice

En los servicios oficiales me pedían un mínimo de una semana y unos 700€ por reparar sólo el ventilador... Las piezas me tardaron en llegar menos de 6 días y sólo me he gastado unos 300... He cambiado el ventilador, el Hardisk por uno de 750Gb y vuelvo a tener Grabadora de DVD... La Máquina va como un tiro... Como el día ke la compré... Adoro IFIXIT.com... Gran Descubrimiento
