    I would like a 16GB Macbook Air, but seems like they are going to kill the line in favour of new Pro and 12-inch

    Why not replaced the thermal compound

    I've got a 2009 Macbook air with 1.86GHz processor speed, 2GBs of RAM, and the original HDD in it needs to be replaced. Is it worth bringing it to one of the Apple Authorized Service Providers to get the HDD replaced? My friend said to not get an SDD because with only 2GBs of RAM, it isn't worth it. I want to at least be able to watch something like Netflix on it, so what should I do?

    Should I just get a new HDD for about $70.00, should I get a new HDD & upgrade the RAM to 4GB, or should I get a SSD and keep the 2GB of RAM? What should I do without dumping too much money into an old machine? Thanks

    Well, I wanted to upgrade RAM by myself but after seen this video I'd rather not.
    Thank you.

    is the amount of ram selected by the resistors or do each ram chip tell the computer individually how big it is? upgrading ram on a acer w700 would be great.

    Do you offer this service? I wish I could send in the logic board of my 2012 MacBook Air! 2GB, so sad. lol

    7:21 'we need to change the BIOS and restore' ??? what do you mean by that? There is no BIOS on the intel macs. There was an Open Firmware at one point but that's long ago. Do you mean EFI, NVRAM or PRAM maybe ???

    Hey, REWA, how much would such an upgrade cost? I don't have a macbook, I'm just curious…

  14. Dr Mundo says:
