One of the things Makers are known for is not just building new stuff, but for getting a lot of use out of old stuff. Repairing, reuse, repurpose is as much part of maker culture as the creativity and engineering aspects. With that in mind, when my old MacBook Pro started showing signs of age, I knew what I had to do!
I have to say, I did follow the fantastic IFixit guides, and I bought their kit, so I knew I would have no trouble. In all it took me under an hour to get the machine back to the point of installing MacOs, and it now runs like a new machine. Next step will be to upgrade the RAM to the machine’s maximum 🙂
