Mac Logic Board Repair

Mac logic board repair or MacBook logic board repair is crucial. Apple users are unfortunately attached to their devices. Old or new it does not matter. Ask any Mac enthusiast about their Macbook and they can almost write a book about how good it is. One can almost compare an old Mac to an aged wine or a classic car. With time it just gets better. Being very robust and sturdy is a testament to how well they are engineered. In fact, the Mac frame is engineered from one block of aluminum using CNC industrial machinery.

Common Mac Parts That Fail

A battery is probably the most common part that fails on Mac’s over time. Batteries have a few different conditions. Normal. Replace soon. Replace now. Service battery. When your battery stops holding the charge or the cycle count is well above 1000 cycles. it will require a replacement. Installing a new battery is simple. Only takes a few minutes on the unibodies. Air batteries only have 5 screws. 11″ and 13″ air battery replacement will set you back around $200. Retina MacBook PRO models have their batteries glued to frame. the process requires some elbow grease and patience. I do not recommend anyone to replace their glued batteries. Because a simple mistake can cost you upwards of hundreds of dollars.

Along with the battery, SATA cables, flex cables, trackpad, keyboard, memory, SSD, HDD and CPU fans may fail.
