Device Info

In October of 2008 Apple released the MacBook Pro 15" Unibody with a new aluminum case drilled from a single aluminum brick. This model introduced some features that were new to Apple laptops: dual video cards, one for power saving casual use and one for graphics-intensive processing, and a Mini DisplayPort replaced the full-size DVI display connector.

The most common repairs with Late 2008 and Early 2009 model MacBook Pro 15" Unibody laptops are replacing a dead battery, replacing a malfunctioning left or right fan, and upgrading the hard drive or RAM. The MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Late 2008-Early 2009) Memory Maxxer RAM Upgrade Kit includes all the parts and tools you need to upgrade to 8 GB of RAM.
