My MacBookPro returned from its vacation to Houston, where it got some new screen parts and a battery replacement.
So far so good, it works
My MacBookPro is back and it works (well so far, a few hours). This MBP better stay lit, as in another day, I am off for a 9 day cross country 4 stop trip.
Okay, so I will say Apple did the repair in an amazingly short turn around time; picked up by DHL on Thursday, Aug 24 @ 4:00 PM, fixed in Houston on Aug 25, and returned to me Monday, Aug 27.
Determining what was done requires some decrypting is it too much to have it stated in human? I believe it is the inverter board for the video display
612-0021 ASSY, INVERTER,NEC-TOKIN,3%,MBPRO15″
In addition, I got:
616-0288 BAT,LITH,60WHR,PLYMR,SONY NPH2,M1:CH
that is a battery replacement, one of those potential hot smokin batteries.
So this ought to be the last installment of my MBP Blues.
