Mid 2010 MBPro - New Lease on life with New Battery and 1TB SSD
My Hard Disk Drive was about 90% full of stuff.... The machine could hardly breathe. AND, the Battery was stuck at zero percent and unable to take any charge at all. Not bad considering the age and all. Computer runs like new; Fast, Snappy, about as good as could be expected for a 2010 computer. AND I prefer the older keyboard if for no other reason than to avoid the problems with the new keyboards.
Repair was simple. Easy. Right tools, right instructions, right prices. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Just follow the guide, and don't hurry. I did not clone my drive before installing, I have a Carbon Copy Clone backup. Thus far, I'm just using it like a new mac, nothing on it. I may be deluded, but I always think they run faster when you keep them clean and lean.
