    Want to watch these repairs as livestreams rather than edited down portions? Check out the live channel below, where I throw all the b-takes and repair videos before they are edited, along with anything else I feel like streaming at the time. thexvid.com/channel/UC6nZlvfz4YWoBWbjiaYJA3g

    Saved yourself how many hundreds of $$$? Too bad they don't seem to have anyone with electronics troubleshooting skills/experience where ever you took it and were going to charge you an arm and a leg. I wouldn't have been too surprised if they didn't even really fix the true issue before giving it back to you.

    Apple apparently just hires anybody who walks in the door - give 'em the shirt and call 'em a "Genius". Training consists of memorizing the line, "It's "$500 to fix it and you'll lose all your data."

    Hey Louis, in my humble opinion I think your best investment would be at 30th & 6 location. *Almost immediately when i saw you guys viewing that Dirty and Dark restaurant location I got a bad feeling... a sinking money pit feeling. You have built a Great Business and I feel it deserves the attention and exposure of "Midtown" location. Thumbs up!
    Feel better buddy, I know its a stressful situation... a break will hopefully allow you to see both locations clearer.

    Not fanboying here, but the idea that a university student absolutely needs a $2000 MacBook because "college", is entirely absurd! He's obviously a victim here, but it's very difficult to have sympathy for people like that when they bring this garbage onto themselves because they refuse to reason in practical terms and only care about status and "looking cool".

    Where can I buy the paste you used with the heat gun? Is it just regular flux or a special kind? I have a bottle of low-heat solder for SMC that seems to have dried out a lot over years. I want to dilute the consistency of it. I assume you are using the same liquid in your video.

    Apple lies and says you'll lose your data, so that they can just replace the entire computer and not have to do any work and charge you 5 times as much for literally doing NOTHING by just "claiming" they "fixed" it. NEVER TRUST APPLE. APPLE IS THE BUGGEST SCAM IN THE WORLD.

    if you're taking your computer to Best Buy/Geek Squad, you truly deserve to get raked over the coals financially. They are INEPT, INEXPERIENCED, and their primary job is to give you such outrageous prices on repairs that you cave and just buy something new.

    Do logic board spontaneously corrode? What is your opinion on what caused the corrosion? You said at first that they said there was no water exposure... is this indicative of water exposure, or something else? Could this have been prevented? Other than the obvious of not buying MacBook Air...

    Since the demise of Steve Jobs, the quality of Apple products is way way way down, including the iPhones and MacBooks.
