  • MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2012 Upper Case Assembly Replacement

    -It would be cool a 3rd party battery manufacturer to make a spare battery without the glue.

    -Ony needed to remove the glued one (no prob. if damage it.. it is no good anyway, anymore) and put in place a new one with no glue held in place just by the lack of space inside the case, or some tiny spongy strips to help remove any play.

    -The thing is who would manufacture a spare like this.

    -Even Apple could supply spares like this.

  • Installing Mac Mini Mid 2010 Dual Hard Drive

    This is not a "Disassemble Guide"... is a "REPLACEMENT GUIDE"!

    "follow in reverse order" is not good here.

    -what do we do about all the sensors we removed (osx errors)?

    -where the we put all the stickies ribbons and tape (that prevent short circuits btw)?

    -the sensor cables cannot be routed around the new part because there are no channels to put the cables in (guess what cables will entangle inside)

    So please provide guide about what to do with the replacement part, which is DIFFERENT from the original part.

    Or at least put a note a the beginning:

    THE REASSEMBLE OF THE NEW PART IS NOT PROVIDED IN THE GUIDE.. you are on your own.

    I'm not speaking for myself here, I can do this blindfolded, but for others which are not very technical.

    I can recognize easily a poorly written guide, because I do a lot of them.

  • MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Model A1211 RAM Shield Replacement

    Worked perfect on my 4,1 mbp. Took ~15 min.

    I don't see a boost in speed... or is just me?

    I used 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate SATA Hard Drive model ST9500420AS.

    (if has a G letter at the end (ASG) is the one with built in shock protection who conflict sometimes with the mac own G protection).
