A weekend of Mac Repair and Upgrades

I was a “computer repair guy” this weekend. First up for repair was my son’s iMac, which had a hard drive go bad. Getting to the hard drive in the iMac was fairly easy, but certainly a lot harder than cracking open a PC.

Next up after the iMac repair was upgrading my Macbook Pro with an SSD drive. Working on the MBP was super easy. Took less than 10 minutes to install the new drive. What a difference the SSD makes! Boots in about 8 seconds and launches apps instantly without any bouncing icons in the dock.

    1. I hear ya, it was kind of a pain. I got a quote for labor of $130 (w.o. the drive), so I decided to give it a go and save myself some money. I used a ifixit.com manual for the replacement, and it was very thorough. Step by step, no guessing.
