Fixing Macbook & MacbookPro computers

Pretty much every portable Apple computer I've owned has had a hard drive fail and the optical drives all go (normally a week outside of a year old!) - although they aren't hard to fix it does pay to have a walk through and this is where iFixit come in - they have guides for most machines and they carry the parts.
Before you start pulling current gen Mac laptops apart make sure you have the necessary drivers. Mine required the following (all in watchmaker sizes); pozi-drive, pentelobe, Torx and Trilobe.
