This question already has an answer here:
I have a MacBook Pro Retina Early 2015 model, that I have owned for 2 years. It was working absolutely fine just yesterday (or the day before). I consulted an Apple authorized service center that said I needed to replace the battery but I was confused how could the battery die overnight. So I contacted another Apple authorized service center. They took in my laptop for diagnosis for a couple of days and told me that the "topcase" was faulty and needed to be replaced. Of course they are also charging a hefty sum of money for it.
I have two questions:
- What is a topcase? (sorry i am slightly technologically challenged)
- Is there any way around my problem. I really don't think I can afford a new top case.
My laptop works fine on AC power, it's just that it's not a laptop anymore if I always have to keep it plugged in.
Thanks for you help in advance.
