Cooling prongs! LOL!

I'll admit to sometimes using the same kind of indelicate language when engaged in computer repair. I tend to use different tools, however.

I saw the hammer... so I knew it's wasn't going to end well.. ouch the poor mac...

Helo ! I was a Mac :-)

That mac isn't 5 to 6 yrs old.. It's an Intel based on the configuration and battery. At most it's about 4 yrs old. He keeps the battery but not the ram or harddrive.. those are still useful too.

He should have got a replacement display from ebay and exchange the broken one. No hammer required.

Or just put the whole thing on ebay. Would have fetched a couple hundred bucks.

I admit he chose the more entertaining solution :)

Hoffentlich hat er sich vorher geerdet.

This guy just knows perfectly where every screw sits and how to handle things nice n' carefully in order to fix a mac ;-)

Hey those guys @IFixIt.com should take a closer look at the video, huh ?

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
