    Harddrive orientation

    Yeah, I know I cant move it on its side, this was all done with the machine powered down. The power and sata connectors have been changed, but...I didnt try new psu or different sata port. The thing is the same power and sata port, work when it is lying flat, only on its side does it 'click'...

    Copying a laptop directly?

    My reasoning was that its still the same locked system, I still have to log into domain etc. Its just different hardware. Well, I guess this won't work and I will try to cope.

    Choices! 27" Monitor Recommendations

    Yeah, so a friend has the PB287Q. He says it is great, but the Dell ends up being cheaper, which is why the asus was not included in my considerations.

    Best Lightning Dock Alarm clock

    Replacing Screen on 15'' MBP (Help!)

    a fairly safe bet is to order from ifixit.com or OWC which are very reputable vendors. Otherwise find the part and Ebay it. do you know if its not the GPU thats shattered and just the screen thats posing the problem?
