Sales, and how saving people money still makes you the bad guy.

A lot of new business people fall into the trap of trying to be too nice to everyone. Unfortunately, sometimes I fall for that, four years into this.

A1226 A1260 Macbook Pro 15" repair - does not require removing top case

I eventually plan on releasing a series of free repair videos that show you how to properly do these machines. So many guides have people taking the entire machine apart and removing the display assembly. Simple workaround, get a Wiha Tools #00 screwdriver, from the precision series.

A1226 & A1260 screen compatibility

The A1226 & A1260 model 15" Macbook Pro uses many different LCDs, like many Macbooks of the same model. However, it is rare in that some of the LCDs used in this machine are not compatible.
