After more than 30 years of owning a PC, over 25 years of building and repairing PC's and over 15 years building and designing websites I decided a change was required and having enjoyed using my iPhone and iPad the Macbook was the simple choice.
Macbook Pro 2011
I regained consciousness fairly quickly after digesting the costs involved with high end Macbook's and headed over to the famous bay to check out the price of second user options. My wife brought me round this time with some very old fashioned smelling salts which are now stored close by. A 5 year old Macbook Pro sells for £400+, by comparison a 5 year old PC laptop of similar specification was around £50. I also found that faulty machines of similar age were selling for £200+.
Stunned by what I had found I decided to invest my money in a project consisting of a water damaged Macbook Pro originally sold in 2011. I transferred my £230 for my old but high end machine and waited patiently for the parcel to arrive.
A few days went by and my parcel arrived. Excitedly I open it, set it up and attempted to turn it on however my excitement was short lived due to the machine showing no signs of life. My project had now started.
Today we now have the equipment and expertise to repair all Mac laptops from Macbook Air to Macbook Pro for a fraction of the cost of a new logic board from Apple. It still baffles me today as to why Apple do not repair any of their products, they replace old with new at huge costs to the end user.
