Yup, the entire logic board has to be changed.i found a great offer for a macbook pro retina 13, but the soldered components are holding me from make the upgrade
how much would it cost out of warranty to change a faulty ram?
do they need to change the entire logic board?
Flat rate USD 300-ish repair.not sure if old desktop PC did handle ram the same way but i saw many faulty ram on old desktop after 2/3 years.
One year ago a friend of mine laptop did not boot i changed the ram and it fixed.
Logic board change how much could it cost?
rMBPs don't even use HDDs anymore. They're SSD-only. The SSDs are replaceable, but nobody makes 3rd party parts on it.i don't have the macbook yet, i'm asking because i now on new models ram and hdd is soldered

Exactly, I can't recall seeing a MBP failing because of a bad ram module. I'm sure it happens but its a rarity.rMBPs don't even use HDDs anymore. They're SSD-only. The SSDs are replaceable, but nobody makes 3rd party parts on it.
How about this, soldered RAM on the rMBP will not fail, because most RAM failures are due to electrostatic discharge. Since you can't even get at the RAM chips with your hands (without opening it up), electrostatic discharge is highly unlikely.
Besides, you're not even supposed to open up the back panel, then that way, you can be sure that you will not damage anything.
How about this, soldered RAM is far less likely to fail (right next to impossible, in fact), because the user cannot cause electrostatic discharge to it, since it's soldered.sorry i may not explain correctly
i want to buy a new macbook pro mid 2014, now i have a early 2011 and works fine for me but retina display and the ability to scale down and have more room on desktop it would be a great upgrade
what really hold me i s the fear to have some soldered part fail, so i'm wondering how much would cost me to replace something like RAM in a official Apple store out of warranty since apple care id about 20% of macbook pro price
I had quite a few mac, a 24 imac and a 27 imac both with apple care
and on 3th year both had monitor issue
apple product are good but may have problems
so i was wondering how much could it cost to fix a soldered and glued macbook pro of warranty
I see, I thought you were looking to buy a cheap (but broken) MBP, pay a little money and then repair it.sorry i may not explain correctly
I think you're worrying about something that isn't really an issue. If you are concerned about the warranty length, then splurge and purchase the extended warranty.in italy if ask for invoice ( is for business use ) warranty drops to 1 year, has why i'm so concerned about longevity
I GOT A 2012 retina 15" broke after 4 years... 2,6ghz 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD lasted 4 years, plus battery almost dead, the repair was 975 USDYup, the entire logic board has to be changed.
However, RAM is far less likely to fail after time. RAM almost always either fails right from the start (wear and tear principles don't apply to RAM), so don't worry about it.
No offense, but... what's the purpose of necroing this 3.5 year-old thread? A used 4-year old laptop, Mac or whatever, can indeed fail and if so it has to be repaired out of warranty. It sucks when it happens to you, but there isn't anything unacceptable nor strange about that.I GOT A 2012 retina 15" broke after 4 years... 2,6ghz 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD lasted 4 years, plus battery almost dead, the repair was 975 USD
this is not acceptable by any means
