  • A soft fibre paintbrush to clean out dust and muck from ports always works. Also good for use on circuit boards too before applying IPA ;)

  • Neat to see this come back to life, though I would highly advise people to avoid core2duo era macbooks like the plague. They cant even really play youtube videos anymore at 720p. And their age will show ever faster as the years go. If you want to find a cheap mbp fixer make sure its at least a first gen i5 or i7. 2012's are the sweetspot right now as they support the latest mojave version of macos.

  • Hi Hugh. Was wondering if you can help me out. I have a 2016 Macbook. Some of the keys are stiff and cannot be pressed. Im guessing there are crumbs under the keyboard from the previous owner or something. Any tips on freeing up the keys so they can work properly again? I know with the Macbook pro you can simply pop out the keys and clean under, but i’m not sure I can do the same thing with this one. Would appreciate the help. Thanks!!

  • Hi Hugh. I have come across your channel recently, and I appreciate what you do with old hardware. For dirty logic boards and motherboards, I would recommend using brake cleaner and high percent alcohol to clean them. Note that brake cleaner tends to discolor some plastic, however this should not be an issue if you remove the board from the device first.

  • I've just bought a 2010 unibody MacBook with Sierra and already ordered the 8GB RAM upgrade before it's due to arrive. Is there anything else I should do? I'll see how it runs on the included 4GB, but I'm pretty sure I'll go on with the RAM upgrade simply because I'll actually have the RAM before the MacBook arrives.

  • Hi. I own a mid 2012 MacBook pro and I'm looking to upgrade to a SSD drive. However I'm curious if you think I should replace my battery as well? It has around 700-900 cycles lady I checked. And also, is there a way to tighten the hinges for the screen without disassembling the whole screen? Thanks for the interesting content. Keep it up.
