nice find, god dammit apple, damn gma 950, it's the only thing stopping me and it's killing me.
Swallow your pride man. Do have a specific app in mind that won't run (well) with the GMA?
I'll be using Aperture on mine. It's not officially supported but ithe UB version installs without a hack now and runs fine according to reports. Apple's Aperture product manager said it's OK in fact.
MY GOSH! It's been a whole day and we're getting disassembly photos just now?
Are those guys in China are getting lazy, or what?
Eh... looks like they're putting on the thermal grease at least somewhat correctly... it's not like they were all "OMG GUYZ IF WE PUT ON A GIENT BLAWB OF THURMAL GREESE MAY-B THULL WERK BETTAR!!1!"
3d studio max, vue despirté, a bunch of games.
arrrg **** it, i'm buying one my pc can deal with that.
Well, it seems to me that the white Macbook uses a different plastic material when compared to the black one. The white one is all glossy on the outside, just like the iBook, the black one is not:
I love these quick disassembles.
What is really nice is that hard drive. A lot of my PC friends think that replacing a hard drive is common practice (for when it dies or gets killed with a virus) and found it odd that the Macs were not user serviceable. This is a great step forward in the design.
More about the removable hard drive.
how hard is replacing the hard drive for mac pro book? the macbook look so easy to replace... should I be jealous?
The whole top case needs to be removed and a few other little bits and bobs to replace the HD in a MBP.
Its probably recycled Pismo plastic in the black one. Seriously though, that's probably why the black one doesn't look so good (in non marketing photos, eg real life) as I thought it would. It really just looks like an old black Apple laptop. The black iPods are glossy, the white iPods, iMacs and MacBooks are glossy, why isn't the black MacBook glossy?
I think the easy replaceable HD is one of the coolest features for the MacBook....
Why is the CPU from 2004?
I love the way the battery is set in farther on the book. on the iBook it right on the edge and you can see the seem.
Maybe it was designed in '04? I don't know.
Best guess is it's the copywright/patent for the design specifications, when it was filed.
i still dont think is very hard for Apple to upgrade the CPU, just matter how much need to be charge, of cos is not as easy as replacing a CPU from a socket...
