God Damnit. I thought eBay had me covered. Cases. Chargers. Batteries. Screens. Everything. They had it on eBay. Then, last week, I decided, you know what, my MacBook Pro (Mid-2012) is in need of a major refurb! To keep it running good for another few years yet. It'll be 3 years old in February. I need a new keyboard, few keys on mine are loose and falling off. Got one on eBay. I need a new charger, mines is hanging to shreds. Looked on eBay. Nothing other than fakes, reported to blow up. The original is £80. F*ck. I need a new battery, mine has passed 1000 charges and is starting to deteriorate. The Keyboard Bought one from eBay, it said New.. it said Apple was the brand. When I got it, it was clearly a reformed part. Fitted it. Worked for about 2 minutes then intermittently rows wouldn't work. Had to refit the original and sent that POS back. Looked on eBay, they're all bloody reforms. Apple said they will no longer touch my Mac even if I pay them because I opened it?! The Charger It's £80. Wasn't it always £60? It's the same 60W MagSafe that's been out for almost a decade. I'm sure the R&D has been well paid off, and it costs pennies to make. Why did Apple feel the need to up the price, especially on the MagSafe 1 which is no longer going to be around since it's been replaced twice. No alternatives that won't surely blow up the house can be found?! The Battery Well, it says Replace Soon. It's fine at the minute, but wouldn't mind replacing it for sheer dependability when out and about. That is, if I could find one! There seems to be no aftermarket for genuine Apple parts. I CANT AFFORD TO BUY A NEW MAC, NOT WITH THOSE PRICE JUMPS! I DONT WANT TO REPLACE IT WITH A LOUSY WINDOWS LAPTOP. ALSO CANT AFFORD A SURFACE PRO. iPAD PRO WONT DO THE JOB! I would love to keep fixing this Mac until I'm forced to give it up.. but I didn't think such simple items - which I have the ability to replace - would be so hard to FIND! *sigh* Your thoughts and solutions?
