    it just died? It worked yesterday and was charged. 1st gen, bought in May of 2015. I think I took it in about a year-year and a half ago and they replaced half of the hardware. Has anyone else’s died like this? It’s going into the store this week, do I even bother to fix it or get an air or a mbp 13?

    Sorry to hear that. Hope they can get you back up and running. My 12in is a 2015 model as well. What did they replace for you last year?

    It was the logic board, replaced on 11/2017, but now the computer is out of Apple care I assume.

    Thanks for that. Now way I want to spend over $500 on outdated product. They already replaced that logic board twice. Doubt they would replace and cover it again for free. I have a brand new 15inch MBP as a work computer, now really deciding if I want an Air or 13inch pro

    Mine was just returned for a logic board replacement. After swapping the battery and keyboard, I would have an issue where the screen would randomly go black. Apple is repairing it free under the 90 warranty with my battery replacement.

    Update: $575 to fix. Since Best Buy is having a crazy sale on MacBook’s I decided to just get a new MacBook 13 inch 2.4 ghz today. It’s a shame, crappy machine that didn’t last. My wife has a 2016 12inch, warranty is up September 2020, hopefully it doesn’t have the same issues. I really hope this MacBook Pro lasts more than 4 years.
