iFixit Mac and iPod Parts & Upgrades
The following is a ReviewMe Sponsored Post:
I am sure many of us have experienced the horror (or heartache, if you want to look at it that way) of a dropped, smashed, or otherwise broken gadget. The folks at iFixit aim to soften the blow somewhat, at least if your destroyed gadget is an iPod or Mac computer. They sell just about every part imaginable for almost all iPods that have ever been released, from the 1st generation model all the way up to the newest iPod 5th generation. In fact, the only iPod parts they don’t sell are for the second generation iPod shuffle. We expect that will change soon enough.
On the computer side of things, if you have a busted G3 or G4 PowerPC Mac portable, they have you covered. of course, they also have parts for the newer MacBook and MacBook Pro units, along with Mac mini parts as well.
Now here’s the best part - they don’t just sell the parts, but they also provide free step-by-step tutorials for repairing and upgrading your devices. They are so detailed, that aside from being fully-illustrated, they also make sure you keep track of all the tiny screws so that when you put everything back together, you don’t have spare parts still sitting there glaring at you. Even if you don’t buy anything from them, they seem to be a great resource for anyone looking to tinker with the innards of their Apple gadgets.
