My Problem

After about five years of heavy use on my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, the battery had become disfigured, warping my trackpad along with it. Also, my computer was acting very sluggish.

My Fix

After I received my iFixit delivery, I replaced my RAM and my battery using the 54 Bit Driver Kit and iFixit's easy guides. Everything went perfect. It only took a few minutes, and my MacBook was back up and running.

My Advice

iFixit has great products and great repair guides. If you think tinkering with your laptop is too difficult and only professional geeks can fix it, then you should rethink your philosophy because it's really easy with the right tools and the right guide, and you can find both here at iFixit.
