Hi guys, I've got a 2012 15" rMBP that had a critical coffee accident a year ago. The cost of replacing the screen and top case is too high, and the SSD seems to have given up the ghost too. However, motherboard and I/O is fine and the tech in the shop managed to successfully boot off his external HD. What would you do with something like this? It could make a good home entertainment centre with a basic external HD, even if a 2.4 i7 CPU and 16gb RAM would allow it to do a whole lot more. With a monitor it could make a good desktop computer, but then you would need a faster external drive to boot off (Lacie rugged TB perhaps?). Also, the tech warned against replacing the internal SSD as he thought it may go bad again at some point in the future. Suggestions please... ---------- Actually, could you even boot off of a 64gb SD card and then use a normal external HD for storage?
