What part do I need?Hi, My daughter used this to play old games on CD. I tripped over the power cord and must have damaged the plug in port....
2011 model worth holding on to?I have 2 early 2011 17" PowerBooks both work but run at a snails pace. My main one has all the ram maxed out but still is...
Antwoord op "MacBook Pro 17" early 2011, possible revival?"So I purchased an SSD drive. I am curious once you install it how do you format it using your time capsule back up. If it has no bootable system on it how do you install one? I will remove the 2 4GB ram cards from the computer that is failing (since I have two of the same computers). There where no 4 GB available. Also, how I came to have two of the same models is crazy. I bought a new 17 inch computer at the same time I brought an older 17 inch model in to repair (a recall deal). Apple replaced my old one with a brand new one rather than repair it! I have been using the one I purchased with 8GB ram but now it is having problems so I am beefing up the replacement computer.
Antwoord op "MacBook Pro 17" early 2011, possible revival?"I'm in exactly the same boat. I am a graphic artist running Adobe suite also. I am trying to decide if I should invest in a new MacBook Pro or refurbish my old 2011 17" MacBook Pro. What is the reason you are waiting for 2018 before you invest in a new one? I hate when they come out with the latest and greatest a month after I just bought one!!
