The new MacBook Pro and the LG UltraFine 5K Display

The 2016 MacBook Pro is, honestly, a lovely piece of hardware. Slim, with an excellent screen and a large touchpad. The Touchbar is, I’m sure, very useful but as I use a separate keyboard and monitor, it’s not something I get an opportunity to use much.

But it’s not perfect. And neither is the LG LG UltraFine 5K display.

Changing the Battery in a mid-2012 Macbook Pro

Some time ago, I detailed how to replace the hard drive in a mid-2012 Macbook Pro and, now, after 4.5 years of use, it’s time for the battery to be replaced.

Apart from the battery you’ll need 2 screwdrivers to do this – A Phillips #00 Screwdriver and a Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver. Some kind of plastic “[wikilink]spudger[/wikilink]” will be needed as well.

The battery I purchased from Amazon came with both the required screwdrivers and I had a spudger from a phone repair kit.
