Mijn probleem

I've been a long-time Mac user and never once had any issues with hardware. But I guess there's always a first for everything. While casually surfing the web, I noticed that the trackpad wasn't clicking down as it usually should. It seemed to be stuck and any attempt to move the cursor resulted in highlighting everything. My trackpad was stuck and the warranty had expired two months ago! I knew getting this repaired would have cost an arm and leg so it was straight to Google for me. That's when I came across iFixit and found the part I needed. $140 including shipping for the trackpad and the tools. Not bad at all...

Mijn oplossing

The order took about a week for me to receive it. Not bad considering I live in Australia :) Upon receiving the replacement part and the tools, I got straight into tearing my MacBook Pro apart. 10 minutes later (5 of which was waiting for the iFixit guide to load up on the crappy family pc...) my Mac was as good as new. Trackpad in full working order, yay! :)

Mijn advies

Follow the iFixit guide and you'll have no problems whatsoever! It's a lifesaver! I was able to fix my Mac myself for half the price. Money well spent! :)
