macbookpro surgery is done, was a success
i was left with about 5 extra screws, but everything seems secure. the ribbon for the keyboard was the hardest thing to do... very tricky to slide into the slot. also the entire time i was screwing the logic board back in, i was thinking 'this seems kind of high'... anyway i get the whole thing up and running and the trackpad doesn't work, i'm like 'oh fucking great'... so i look at the set up and realize that the connector for the track pad wasn't connected, i had pinned it under the logic board and thats why it was sitting up so high the whole time lol... had to take the LB back out... after that though it was fine booted up like normal
i'm gonna have to get the new bottom panel... http://i.imgur.com/JThZbud.jpg that's what might current looks like and i can't live with something like that. i figure i'm gonna have this computer for a few more years so spending the money to do it right is worth it
its nice having a new keyboard its very clean , track pad too, very slick feeling
brand new upper assembly: http://i.imgur.com/MUjWndk.jpg
old one gutted: http://i.imgur.com/pDIjzWK.jpg
this Envoy thing is pretty slick... exact same metal/machining style as the macbooks
mtw you were saying its overpriced but idk i think if you were going to use this thing seriously and not just for a a quick recovery method its worth it, its very nice, came in a nice box & black draw string bag too
Coinbase gives you $1 in bitcoins when you sign up.. It's all I have right now because of the buying lockout (I think I was denied because I signed up using my name but used my wife's bank account so the 2 names must have triggered a flag ... If I tie a CC to the account I should be able to buy instantly) anyway... The $1 in bitcoons is now worth 87 cents
The upper assembly shipped ..$800 for a new one. There were cheaper used ones but fuck $150 more for a new battery too is worth it . The bottom panel is another $200 which is ridiculous as it's just a thin piece of metal. I didn't get it but might down the line .. My old one will work for now but is bent in one corner where I had to pry it off because of the stripped screw . Taking all the components out of the old frame was surprisingly easy it's really no different than build a pc just smaller parts and some paper thin connectors. I just hope I don't crack the plastic saddle thing under the monitor because it was already a pain to take it off the first time when I tightened the hinge.. Should be here tomorrow I'll post pics of the build tomorrow night
