    I used this video: to install windows 10 on my early-2011 MBP. It worked fine until about 8:22 in the video. It says to install boot camp and then another page will pop up asking if you want to install using compatibility settings. But when I click on the file to install boot camp, first it...

    Power issue with 2011 MBP: I'm out of ideas

    Hi Everyone, I've been trying to diagnose a power issue with my mid-2011 MBP 13" and am running out of ideas. I don't want to take it to the apple store yet because I have a feeling they'll just do everything that I've done already and then try to replace the battery, which I can do myself. So...

    MBP Early 2011 Instant off when remove power

    I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) that recently started turning off instantly when I remove the MagSafe power cord. It otherwise works great.

However, for those that own the computers, doing so isn't quite as easy, because they are aware that they have a fully functional computer, minus one part, and that the system itself ironically...
