My 2011 Macbook Pro 17″ failed again. A few years back, the GPU went bad so I sent it to a guy in the UK that replaced the GPU, and then it worked for maybe two years. It failed again a couple of months back, but I don’t think it’s worth having it repaired now. I did, however, just do a reflow on it for kicks. It didn’t fix the computer, though, but that won’t stop me from describing what I did. So this is an example of what doesn’t work.

@Martin, I was wondering if you could possibly help me out? I have contacted apple (apple care) a few different times and have gotten nowhere! After reading this article/post, I feel that you would be a lot more help than apple. Is there a good way I can contact you or even give you a phone call? This is all concerning the poor performance of my 2017 iMac Pro that I NEED running “snappy” for work.
Please let me know if you find some time and could possibly take a look under the hood.
I’m not sure I can help since I’m probably half a globe away from you, assuming you’re in the US. (I’m in Sweden.) But maybe somebody else is seeing your comment and can help?
(BTW, I took out your email and weblink, since I wasn’t sure you wanted those public.)
