Mac Classic Desktop - MacBook Pro mod
When my MacBook Pro 13” logicboard started to fail, I bought a new machine, but was left with what to do with it. So I decided to get a little creative and make a mod machine.
The logicboard has been assembled in a Apple Disk Drive casing, I tried to solder a power switch to the motherboard, ruining a few of the powerpads in the process, so ended up drilling a hole in the top of the casing and powering it on by using a paperclip on the powerpads.
I haven’t quite finished, as the fan runs at full speed the whole time, I’m guessing due to all the missing components that are meant to be connected (LCD screen, Bluetooth, speakers, wifi, optical drive) and have read that it is the default setting for the logicboard. I would also like to install some kind of slot load system into the front of the machine via a hdd caddy I had in my macbook.
Not sure of what I will use it for, but was fun getting it to go.
