  • Lol funny story when I was like 6 or 7 we had an old MacBook I used it a ton for SEworld I also happened to love magnets at the time and I had a huge refrigerator magnet and well long story short MacBooks are magnetic but at a cost lmfao

  • okay so I recently got one of these (a black polycarbonate MacBook) with no operating system installed due to the previous owner resetting it completely before giving it to me. it does turn on, but all it shows is a flickering apple logo, prohibitory sign and folder with a question mark (they all stay on screen for a split second each, flickering in no particular order). I don't have a copy of the required Mac OS X version and I don't know where to get one. what can I do👁👄👁

  • I have a late 2013 macbook pro 13 inch and I've had for about 6 months. I have no tools to do a cleaning job on the inside. But I do keep the body very clean. I have a couple stickers on it but I find it's runs great for what I need and boots up fast. Love ur videos.

  • Hi Mr. Jeffreys. I have a 2008 Macbook that still works with all original parts including its original battery and charger. The only thing that does not work is the trackpad so you'll need a mouse. It looks very decent except for the bottom: there's a dent and some misalignment and some missing rubber pads. Any suggestions what I should do with it? Thanks!

    • Its compatible, Apple made it that you can install macOS High Sierra on these, believe it or not, these can run macOS Mojave, if you use a special patcher to install it

  • I actually bought a MacBook just like that off EBay for 50 bucks. The insurance company that it came from was getting new ones. They had put in a SSD drive and eight gigs of memory before they decided to get new ones. Everything works like brand new. First MacBook I’ve ever owned. Plus I saved from the trash heap.

Battery is good but dies after 1 minute when you press the power button, It can't launch the program... But my cuastion is, is it possible to upgrade from i3 to i9 processor and monster cpu?
