My old white MacBook was given to my yellow lab to run her kennel cam (http://www.livestream.com/sophiedays) but after a couple years running in the shed, the fan died and the computer would automatically shut down after it heated up too much. With parts and repair guide in hand from iFixit, the computer was restored to full health and I can once again keep an eye on my best friend during the day.
I've used iFixit repair guides -- and parts - several times over the years and always found the guides perfectly detailed to make the repairs as simple as possible. This one was no exception. Great guides, good selection of parts, and great prices. What could be better for the Do-it-yourself fix-it guys?
Any MacBook or MacBook Pro repair will benefit from having a good set of small drivers (including a selection of Torx bits and multi sizes of phillips heads) and of course, a Spudger is handy in SO many ways -- always have a couple on hand !
