    Modding Macbook Pro: Difference between $100 bracket and $10 bracket?

    Modding Macbook Pro: Difference between $100 bracket and $10 bracket?

    Question for you all: I am going to be removing my optical drive and putting in a SSD as a replacement. I simply need a bracket to go in place of the optical drive, and I'm finding I can spend $100 on a "name brand" bracket, or buy a $10 one off of eBay? For something like a bracket, does...

    Computer broke in shipping?

    Ugh.....the box looked fine for the most part. The buyer sent me a pic. The computer was more than packaged fine though! It's just so frustrating.

    Computer broke in shipping?

    Filed a claim with USPS. Computer was shipped in original packaging, in which the computer is surrounded by foam blocks, and then the original cardboard box was put into yet another cardboard box. The fact that the CPU fan had fallen off when the computer arrived rings some red bells......

He said he took the video card out and then it worked fine...so apparently now the video...

    Computer broke in shipping?

    Best video card under $150? (Also how is this build overall?)

    I love the Dell IPS monitors. If I had the money I'd buy a second 24" one. I just can't justify another $500 though. :) I do a LOT of photography work and graphic design, so of course an IPS monitor made sense. The color clarity and perception is fantastic. The blacks are rich, and has 100%...
