    We repair Macbook logic boards:
    1:01 - A1226/A1260 2007-2008 Macbook GPU failures, warranty service refusal
    2:21 - A1226/A1260 2007-2008 Macbook Pro hinge/frame problem
    3:16 - A1286 Macbook Pro - the "Unibody" myth, glued together pieces fall apart
    4:58 - A1286/A1297 MCP power circuit failure due to poor buck converter design: C7771 issue
    6:01 - iPhone 4 cellular placement fail
    7:12 - iPhone 5 power button problem
    7:27 - A1286 2010 Macbook Pro GPU kernel panics due to same buck converter defect from 2008/2009(this gives you a hint that apple engineers doesn't give a crap about engineering good products, same design flaw for three straight years)
    10:04 - A1286 2011 Macbook Pro GPU failure, Apple gets sued over not addressing problem.
    11:43 - Apple gives out badly refurbished boards as warranty replacements for 2011 GPU failures.
    13:06 - 2012 Retina Macbook Pro: another motherboard issue (U8900), due to poor soldering/manufacturing method on the GPU buck converter.
    14:46 - Mac Pro GPU failure (again).
    16:27 - iPhone 6/6+ touchscreen issue due to structural issue.
    18:23 - SSD soldered straight into the motherboard+ chip that would kill the macbook, because a power line would short out to ground when the chip dies.
    20:18 - 2016 Macbook keyboard reliability issue.
    21:52 - 2016 Macbook Battery failure issue.
    22:50 - A1278 Macbook Pro SATA cable failures(yes, really).

    For 10+ years Apple has produced failure after failure - and never had to pay the consequences. It's time that changed.

    Here's my durability test of the Moto G by throwing it at the wall repeatedly:

    Just don't buy the Yoga or Ideapad, they're all garbage. X, T, and P series Thinkpads are amazing though.
