iFixit Helps You Fixit

iFixit, best known as a teardown king, is relaunching iFixit.com as a repair community–a repository of repair guides, troubleshooting tips, teardowns, and other useful information supplied by readers, plus actual parts that the company will be happy to sell you. I didn’t find anything for an actual repair I’ve been contemplating–replacing a balky MacBook Pro touchpad–but it looks like a cool resource for brave do-it-yourselfers.

    I too have been disappointed at the lack of a tutorial regarding the Macbook trackpads on iFixit. Having actually opened the Macbook though it looks like the trackpad is integrated into the whole keyboard arrangement, which itself is a sealed unit. The only repair option seems to be a replacement, I’m afraid.
