A little replacement of my late-2008 Unibody MacBook Pro – a mid-2012 Unibody MacBook Pro. First thing on my to-do list once receiving it – mod.
Once the lower case removed, its inner beauty stunned me… the diodes and chips were lying there like buildings tall and short, with circuits running through each of them like roads or highways in a metropolis. Following the instructions on ifixit.com and locating the right cables to disconnect or the exact screw to remove was like sightseeing in a sci-fi digital city.
After nearly 2 hours of struggle, I successfully installed the SSD & replaced the DVD drive with a 1TB HDD, of course boosted its RAM from 4GB to 16GB. Case closed and I now have the city to work for me.
