Winter is the time for baked apples. Like this one:
This year we are starting with a different baked Apple though. Someone actually baked his Apple Macbook Pro.
It sounds like one of those pranks, remember? We had the iPad scale, the unbreakable iPhone, the water-proof iPhone, and the microwave-charge iPhone, here comes the bake your Macbook Pro.
Only this time it comes from a reliable source, iFixit. Here is what someone did, when his Macbook Pro died from overheating:
Instead, I cracked open the back of my laptop, disconnected all eleven connectors and three heat sinks from the logic board, and turned the oven up to 340º F. I put my $900 part on a cookie sheet and baked it for seven nerveracking minutes.
After it cooled, I reapplied thermal paste, put it all back together, and cheered when it booted. It ran great for the next eight months. Temperatures averaged in the 60s and 70s C—although recently, they began creeping up again.
Kudos to the tinkerer.
Awaiting the usual Apple idiots to bake their expensive toys,
