Niezły tuning MacBooka

Ktoś się nieźle nad tym MacBookiem napracował:

  • wszystkie nie-literowe klawisze wymienione na odpowiedniki z czarnego MacBooka
  • wymieniony AirPort na obsługujący 802.11n - tak jak opisałem w jednym ze wcześniejszych postów (tuningowany Mac to wersja CoreDuo)
  • jabłuszko na pokrywie zmienione na oldskulowe tęczowe (przy pomocy materiałów z iColours.ca)
  • przezroczysta osłona SeeThru firmy Speck Products

MacBook w płomieniach (!)

Niech przemówią obrazy:

Całe szczęście to nie mój. Powyższe zgliszcza należą do Australijczyka o nicku mattyb.  Poniżej fragment jego relacji:

 „I have noticed for the past 3 weeks the battery life has been poor. I was only getting an hour to an hour and a half from it (compared to over 3 hours).
I also notice the battery symbol had an X showing a couple of times but a restart would sort that out.
One last thing I noticed over the last few days was when the battery was fully charged and on the power, it would flicker between 99% and 100% constantly. Nothing would fix this and I was planning on getting it looked at very soon.

So, Saturday afternoon I watched a tv show (from a ripped dvd) on the macbook. The battery goes down to 21%. I close all programs and shut the lid. It was in sleep mode - the light was pulsing. I usually plug it in for a charge but I didn't this time and head out for the weekend (damn lucky as I would have come home to rubble).
Sunday night, I come home and open the lid. It doesn't wake. I plug the power in and it fires up but showing 0% on the battery symbol.
I surf the net using safari for 30 minutes and the battery is charging up as usual.
I close all programs and shut the lid. Again, I always make sure it's in sleep mode before putting it down. I set it on the book shelf and leave it to charge.

And we are back at the 3am incident. My housemate said she heard it hissing like a steam valve, then smoke started pouring out of it and a couple of seconds later, a very large flash fire started. I'm sure you have read about these and seen the dell video. This is what happened to my macbook.

The battery is swollen and burnt so it's definitely the battery that exploded and caught fire. The macbook is melted on the bottom and severely charred (along with my bookshelves, books, magazines and the wall). The space bar is melted as is the track pad. The screen has been damaged a little too.”

Zniszczony Mac to model CoreDuo. Australijski sprzedawca Apple poinformował właściciela feralnego MacBooka, że wymieni go na MacBooka Pro i pokryje koszty zniszczeń wywołanych pożarem.
