Meu Problema

Battery on MacBook Pro 15" Mid-2009 had swelled to the point of breaking the trackpad located directly above it.

Minha Solução

After ordering the new battery, I was very frustrated to find proprietary Apple screws preventing me from removing the battery.

This proprietary screwdriver could not be found anywhere in Canada.

Luckily, I was able to order the MacBook Pro Battery 5-Point Pentalobe Screwdriver from iFixit.

Replacement of the battery and the trackpad was a breeze.

My mother was delighted.

Meu Conselho

Be careful with Apple!

They love putting different proprietary screws on their products.

I now have a whole set of screwdrivers especially for their products.

Macs are far superior to any Windows computer, but I do hate the amount of control they want to exert over their products.

The screws are specifically chosen to make it difficult to repair the computers without going to one of their stores.

Luckily, there are companies like iFixit.
