Still have an older first generation Macbook Pro laptop? Breathe some new life into it and turn it into a dedicated workstation once again! Think of it like a modern typewriter 🙂


I will cover the following areas:

  1. Repair and maintenance guides
    1. Logic board
    2. LCD upgrade/ change
    3. LCD CCFL backlight replacement/ fix
  2. Common issue fixes
    1. WiFi 802.11g to ‘n’ upgrade for speed and connectivity fixes
    2. Charging cord fraying replacement
  3. Replacement parts and upgrades
    1. SSD
      1. See how to enable TRIM support on Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8.
  4. Useful software and applications
