    My 2010 macbook 13"

    My MacBook (4/512) from 2010 is my daily driver, and let's just say it's faster than my Samsung 2020 Chromebook 3. I just use it to write books and to watch youtube, does anyone think I should upgrade to a higher MacBook? (my budget is $1500 nzd).

    Hello, I have a problem with my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro. It has High Sierra installed and 6gb of ram. Around 3-4 months ago I installed Catalina through dosdude1's patcher and it worked fine until it started randomly shutting off and beeping. It was also time when the battery just went straight...

    This is how my day is going so far...

    So, yesterday I received in my first MacBook Pro. I don't have a lot of money, so I bought a 15" 2010 with the first generation i5. Not bad for what I use it for, mostly web browsing! I have been getting by with a late 2008 13" MacBook unibody that suffered from random freezes often. So I get...

    Another Success Story (fixing 2010 MBP)

    I bought a used 2010 MBP base model that had been dropped on the power cable. Paid $20 USD. After opening it up I breathed a HUGE sigh of relief that the power PCB was separate from the logic board! I'm guessing that is because that particular part must require replacement more often than the...

    MP 1,1-5,1 Mac Pro 4,1 Case Same as 5,1?

    Hi, Does anyone know if a 4,1 (2009) case is exactly the same as a 5,1 (2010 - 2012) so components from a 4,1 model will fit into a 5,1 or vice versa? Cheers, Chris

    Holiday MacBook Woes.

    To make a long story short, I bought 3 2010 MacBooks for the kids as presents for the upcoming holiday (Christmas for us). It was the hardest thing to date so far.
