Just thought you guys would be interesting in seeing some picture from work today. This macbook pro was brought in a week or so ago. Acting extremely sluggish, my first thought was bad drive. So I replaced it with the exact drive that apple uses all the way down to the same model number. That doesn't solve the issue so I send it out to apple for repair. They decide to be apple and reject it due to the hard drive not being OEM. So I decided to just order the Mobo and put it in myself. This is the first time doing Mobo work on a 15" unibody and man is it impressive how they fit everything together. Much nicer design then the aluminum MBPs and also took about half the time as the old one. Here are some pictures of todays work. The thing runs like a champ now. No idea what caused the failure of the board. No sensors tripped or burn marks. The important part is its back in the clients hands and back to doing what it does best, checking emails lol Battery Removed: The screw driver in the top right hand corner is $25 bucks through apple!! Mobo removed from computer Underside of the mobo with heat sink attached. Notice the size, thats college ruled by the way. Underside of the mobo with heat sink off. Heat sink, Very nice design. Much nicer the the older style MBPs O and don't worry I'm wearing a static guard wrist band the entire time. All pictures taken with the iPhone 4.
