Yes, it will work. The only thing you need to understand is that logic board is a determinative component in a MacBook and all the other parts (like flash drive, Wi-Fi module, etc.) just connected to it. But all of them are completely changeable. So if you got two MacBook Air 11" 2011 you can interchange their parts in any order you want. Just don't ...

I would say that you would need to go ahead and use the Genius Bar option to repair your computer. My reasoning is that water damage can cause errors in strange ways that, upon first glance, seem to be straight forward, but are in fact impossible to properly diagnose without professional diagnostic equipment. For example, in your case, I doubt that the ...

I also ended up looking for good solutions. Thunderbolt 2 supports 20 Gb/s. So it could provide enough reserves for a real usb 3 hub where every port could finally run 5 Gb/s = 640 MB/s. As a single SSD already exceeds the speed of a USB 3 connection, we should not put them through a USB 3 Hub bottleneck to not enforce slowing the transfer rates down. ...

Yes, your MacBook Pro supports 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz but not simultaneously. All Macs manufactured since 2007 with integrated Wi-fi support 802.11 a/b/g/n and and some 2006 Macs support 802.11 a/b/g. Only AirPort Base Station and Time Capsules released in March 2009 or later can operate simultaneously over both bands. Source

So the gel containing battery acid has leaked out and dried up. You need to make it muddy again to be able to remove it, since dry removal is not possible. There are multiple methods to do that described here. (Vinegar, Lemon juice, and others). Example: Mix water and baking soda into a thick paste. Start with about a teaspoon of baking soda and add ...

I arrived at this question hoping to find a definitive answer myself but it seems like there are so many factors which affect the answer of how long an SSD lasts - the answer is not simple. Although I could not find information on the specific type of SSD used by Apple (in my Macbook Pro say), I was able to find some of the key factors. Thought it would be ...

Apple has launched MacBook Pro Repair Extension Program for Video Issues which can be found here Apple has determined that a small percentage of MacBook Pro systems may exhibit distorted video, no video, or unexpected system restarts. These MacBook Pro systems were sold between February 2011 and December 2013. Apple or an Apple Authorized Service ...

I had this problem fixed by Apple. Phone support claimed they could only help me with software problems. I didn't try to get through to the Customer Relations. Instead I tried visiting another Apple Store, where they were happy to fix the problem within warranty. This is a costly repair to pay yourself, as the whole "logic board" has to be replaced. ...

Crucial RAM will almost certainly work with the existing. Their configurator is pretty good at getting exactly the right RAM for the machine.

If I understand correctly your question is about whether having matched RAM modules is important. Matched RAM modules allow the motherboard to use the modules in dual channel mode, making more bandwidth available. But as far as I know it is better to have more RAM in single channel than less RAM in dual channel. If you are going for a non-matching module, ...

Considering you're likely out of warranty anyway, depending on where you live, you could use a third-party repair shop. I've had mixed results with repair shops, but I have found one where I live which I would now trust to repair my MBP. In my case, this is a place that only deals in refurbished equipment. Unlike another 3rd party Mac shop whose main ...

A Fan with 0.5Amp will do, since it will not overload the circuit, and only draw 0.5A while 0.66A is available. It might not have enough power to provide sufficient air flow, thus it might run more, but that is only important if you run constantly at elevated Temperatures. Check your mac mini model number to make sure it fits, since the one you are showing ...
