One time I cleaned out my backpack and found two cracked plastic laptop feet and a small handful of tiny metal screws. Talking to other MacBook users, I realized I was not alone: The aluminum case flexes when you pick up your laptop, and it shakes the little screws loose. And the heat from the processor loosens the adhesive on the feet over time. In case your MacBook is a little unstable or not-quite-screwy enough (same, MacBook, same), we’re now selling underbelly repair kits.
Get a better Mac mini for less with our newest fix kit: the Mac mini Late 2018 Memory Maxxer RAM Upgrade Kit. That’s right—straight from Apple, your mini’s RAM will cost an extra $200, $600, or $1400 for 16, 32, and 64 GB, respectively. However, our kit can give you 32 GB of RAM for $275 less—that’s nearly half off Apple’s price! (And, as an added bonus, our 16 GB kit can be a 20 GB kit if you keep one of the base 4 GB sticks.)
Warning: Father’s Day is June 17. That’s coming up fast, folks. And this year, we’re honoring the dads, grandpas, uncles, friends, and mentors who taught us how to fix. In addition to providing much-needed support and guidance during our formative years, these relationships often serve as our first introduction to repair and tinkering.
Here at iFixit, we’ve got a whole pack of new dads and parents. So we rounded them all up to ask them about their favorite iFixit toolkits, and if they’ve recently repaired anything with (or for) their kids. Turns out, the fixer gene has not been spared with iFixit’s youngest generation. We were impressed by the sheer variety of things that dads have fixed for their kids—as well as the repair savvy their little ones possess in their own right.
Today, we’re excited to launch two new driver kits—the Manta Driver Kit and the Mahi Driver Kit. Their aquatic names are a nod to iFixit’s Central Coast roots, and both kits were engineered from the ground up right here in San Luis Obispo, California.
