You'll need a girl

Mein Problem

My boys were running through a room which had MacBook in it in the opened state. The screen was damaged, blind blue spots were slowly spreading. This can be a great excuse to upgrade to Air or Pro, but we rejected this approach. "You broke your toy - here's a better one" - we do not treat kids like this. It's a father-only privilege in our family. So boys were subjected to a couple of months of playing, emailing and doing homework on the damaged screen. Please do not tell this to Child Protective Services.

Meine Reparatur

Pretty good. The manual is excellent.

Took about 4 hours for both directions.

Mein Rat

1. You need a girl to perform this: screws are tiny, in hard-to-get-to places. Girl's fingers and patience are a great bonus. I've used both my wife and daughter.

2. You really, really need good convinient screwdrivers. We started the attack with a kitchen knife. Luckily we realized the failure immediately, before OSH store closed.

3. Look at the picture. See a lot of coffee and tea cups? It's not a remnants of a supper. It's the essential part of success. Step #17, you take a new cup, place all screws extracted there and a piece of paper with #17. Saved us from the catastrophe I think.

4. It was a very nice way to spend an evening with two bright and pretty girls.
