Keyboard, Trackpad, Battery and Topcase is one module, so is the display. So probably driple-digit, close to four-digit. Selling yours and buying a new one would probably even be cheaper.

Nothing you can do without replacing the entire aluminum case, which probably isn't worth the trouble. Since it's cosmetic damage, Apple's warranty won't cover it. Maybe if you found a really skilled machinist, they could make it look better. But it would probably mess up the labels on the ports, so not worth it.

Most likely you got a bad replacement display. It could be the cable, connector or another part. It could also be the GPU, or associated video hardware. But I would bet on the replacement screen being the culprit.

This is the result of excess force squeezing the wrist pad against the internal components. In your other question asking about heat stress is a no go. Aluminum doesn't weaken or deform that way in temperature ranges where plastic won't melt and batteries don't catch fire. The bulge in the other question is really compression bending the case inward and ...

I doubt that the Mac would get so hot internally that the metal would warp before the Mac shut itself down. There are thermal sensors throughout the unit designed to keep it from thermal overload. Did this actually happen to you? How is it warped?

The Toolbar on the Preview App is handy for basic editing, but more detailed work would require a proper photo editing application. The Photos app provides some basic editing such as color correction and rotation. However it does not (correct me if I am wrong) allow for working Alpha channels or layers. There are several third party apps available on the ...

So basically I hear three things in your Question. You want the speed and performance of the Air's SSD drive. You want to want to leverage the processing performance of the iMac.

Let me guess: the issue appeared with the 10.10.3 update? Well, then I am 98% certain it is a bug in OS X Yosemite. Your issue is related with this one. Users report erratic kernel panics and some users have graphics glitches like you. The only common feature is having a Intel HD 4000 GPU. On MacBook Pros with dual GPU you can avoid the problem by ...

It is likely not supported. This article (apple.com) says how to use an iMac as a second display but makes no mention of using a MacBook(Pro) as one. Which usually means it is not supported.

Well, i guess you solved your problem by now, but I still wanted to answer, since I recently looked into eGPU options myself. If your sole aim is to run a 4K monitor (and your GPU doesn't support it), you could probably also get a USB graphics adapter. You find a selection here. This certainly is a much cheaper option, but probably too slow to watch ...

The single headphone jack is a 3-pole connection, allowing for you to use, for example, a headset with a microphone to allow both audio in and out of the connector. Obviously, this is in MONO for incoming, which may not be suitable for all recordings, but might well be fine for sermons. You'll need to get a hold of a suitable adapter/splitter (This is one ...

The CPU chip is the brain of the computer. Explained in most simple terms, it works with 1 and 0. Like the light switch on and off. In order for it to create a single number or letter it needs 8 switches working together. It does the switching millions of times per second, with millions of switches at the same time. The more it has to do the more ...

Although the games may not be graphically intensive, they may still be intensive on the CPU, and it is likely the CPU temperature you are seeing rise.

Neither the RAM, Processor, or SSD can be upgraded. I recommend 16 GiB RAM, everything else you can decide on.

I use the 13 inch MBP for development. It is essential that you buy an external monitor. I recommend the LG Ultrawide. Also get a decent keyboard; chicklet keyboards are known to cause tendonitis. Lastly, don't over-spend. Lots of people buy elaborate gear and then never really use it.

No. It will works fine. There aren't problems with Apple warranty (it is international). Register your Mac with a valid purchase date. Pay attention to which country you will select for your Apple ID, it will be the country that you are supposed to use for purchases.

The folder with question mark on start up means that the Mac is unable to locate your boot drive. Many possible causes: Corrupted boot disk.

It would be perfect for development! I'm a Software Engineer and I'm currently developing using a MBP 13'' mid 2010, 2.66 GHz, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB.

Despite what Weird Al would have you believe, it is no longer "All about the Pentiums" (jury is out regarding whether the 'Benjamins' are still a relevant unit of currency).

SourceForge is having issues right now. Others are having trouble downloading also. You may end up having to request the author upload the binaries to another source. I am pretty sure if it was an issue with your configuration, you'd still be able to download just not run, or not have access to the internet at all.

So, having verified the drive is, in fact running at SATA-III speeds, it looks like this post describes doing what you need. Be aware it requires a DOS environment to run, so you'll likely want FreeDOS with the .iso loaded already. I haven't used this, so I am unable to verify results. Attempt at your own risk.

Each Mac's serial number should be printed on the outside of the casing. Locate the serial number. Apple provide instructions on how to locate the serial numbers on their devices here. And then enter the serial number on Apple's Service and Support Coverage to find out the real model and age of the device.

You can force eject the disc by restating. When you hear the chime Press COMMAND-E or hold down the trackpad/mouse button.

YES. It can be done if your MBP has the extra graphics chip AND you use Displayport as one of the monitor inputs. Click on "About this Mac" "System Report" "Graphics/Displays" and look to see if it has 2 graphics chips one of them being "AMD Radeon R9 M370X" My experimentation has taught me this: 2012 MBPR with extra graphics chip can drive 2x TB-DVI + ...

At the risk of sounding obvious, something inside broke. If you are the handy type and have the tools you could open it up following the directions for your model on iFixit.com or take it to an Apple store (or other Apple dealer who does repairs) and see what they say. Also do not power on a laptop with something rattling around in it after you dropped it. ...

The most common reason that explains why sometimes your mac gets very laggy and then turns to frozen is that people using demand exceeds the Mac Performance. - Holding the power button to force it to turn off and then turn it on again is a temporary solution. - You can either quit some running heavy app and other software solution such as cleaning up your ...

The first rule of computer troubleshooting: "isolate and identify." Which basically means undo any changes you made recently. If you plugged a new mouse in, remove it. If you installed a new app, remove it, etc. In your case I would remove the drive in the optical bay and put the Apple optical drive back in and see if the issue repeats. User "n1000" hints ...

I am currently using Yosemite successfully with a very similar computer: 2008 iMac 2.66 C2D. I would strongly encourage you to upgrade to 8GB of RAM and swap your drive out for an SSD.

The problem seems to be only with that particular SSD and Mac OS X, because it works with other SSDs. My feeling is that garbage collection or TRIM are to be blame in this case.

Belated answer to one of your side questions: You probably need the discrete GPU enabled to use an external display. The reason why should be in how the GPUs and the video outputs are wired.
