  • Guys, balak kong iparepair yung macbook pro ko, bale ang issue niya ay yung magsafe 2 charging port. Hindi ko sure kung saan dapat iparepair, gusto ko din kasing makamura, nung una balak kong i-DIY repair pero nung nakita ko na medyo mabusisi yung pagbaklas ng laptop ay inabandon ko na yung idea na iyun. Bale ang tanong ko lang ay saang repair shop ba mas okay na iparepair ang power port. Bale na isolate ko na yung problem, ang issue kasi ay masyadong maiinit yung tip nung magsafe 2, bale sinubukan nanamin yung charger sa ibang laptop at wala namang issue, bale laptop ko talaga ang may problem.

    Parang ayokong basta magtiwala sa ordinary repairshop lang kasi almost 100K yung macbook kaya parang alangan akong dalhin sa ordinary repair shop lang. Pinag-iisipan ko kung ipaparepair ko nalang sa PowerMac, BTB, or iStudio kahit na medyo masmalaki yung fee at least ay may peace of mind ako na mererepair nga nila.

    Ngayun, medyo naghehesitate din ako, baka kasi sabihin nila na logic-board ang sira kahit hindi naman para lang makasingil sila ng malaki. Anong store ang trusted guys?

    Trust your instincts.
  • Any recommended service center sa BGC or nearby?

    Matatapos na AppleCare ko for my 2016MBP, hahabol ko lang yung lid and lower body hindi pantay pag naka close. Saka ang sticky nung rubber sa lid, hindi kaya one finger open pag di nagamit for a few days.
  • Just for everyone’s info, nag baka sakali lang ako since mabilis nag deteriorate yung battery ko at 160+ cycle (less than 80% na agad capacity) dinala ko sa PMC kahit hindi eligible sa battery recall for those 15inch 2017 MBP retina.

    Pagdating ko dun sinabi ko na rin sa assesor na unresponsive yung middle ng force trackpad pag nag heatup na yung unit gamit ang charger.

    Sabi ng assesor pag pumasok daw sa criteria na bloated ang battery wala daw ako babayaran kahit di na under warranty at walang apple care. Ang estimate cost kasi ng battery replacement is around 23-25k that includes top case kasi nakadikit ang battery dun.

    I got the diagnostic result today at pumasok siya sa bloated battery criteria :)

    Greetings from Power Mac Center! Necessary order to replace the defective TOP CASE WITH BATTERY (under Apple’s exception/Quality Program) of your Mac, have been approved by Apple.


    So sa mga merong similar problem try niyo rin kahit wala na kayo warranty, ang risk lang, pag di pumasok sa Apple’s exception, magbabayad ka ng diagnostic fee (P2500.00) sa PMC.

    Check natin kung MagSafe Port ang may problem o baka napa-check mo na sa ibang repair shop?

    May MagSafe Port ako na parts nyan at pati Main Logic Board...PM na lang
  • Macbook Pro 13 inch 2016 model may recall po ba sa lcd?
    unang open black ang screen hanggang mga 1-5mins bago lumabas display.


  • Walang recall.

    Pero sakin nagka isang stuck pixel, pinalitan top case. Under AppleCare.
  • Sent my 2018 15” mbp sa power mac center because of bloated battery. Out of warranty na pero free repair pa din since battery problema. Battery and top case to be replace by apple. Waiting for my unit at least 2 weeks pa daw repair time.
  • Natempt ako mag upgrade doon sa 16" MBP pero may rumor na naman ngayon na magkakaroon ng 16" refresh at new 14" model with MiniLED display at 10th Gen Intel Core CPUs later this year. Wait mode na naman.
  • ^I'm also interested on the 14.1" model.... mukhang eto ang sakto for me. Yung 15/16 kase masakit sa wrist ko - medyo alangan yung sizing for me.

    Intel pa rin kaya sila sa next gen? :)
  • My MBP Mid-2009 still kicking. Stock Battery....Upgraded eversince to 8Gb RAM and 512Gb HDD. Still contemplating on upgrading to SSD. Malaki kaya magiging immprovement?
  • Intel pa rin kaya sila sa next gen? :)


    Possibly in-house ARM daw pero I can only see those SoCs used with MacBook Airs and MacBook Pro 13/14" models initially, but for 16" MBPs and Mac Pros, iMac Pros and the like, the transition away from x86 ISA would probably take longer. It's likely going to be Intel Comet Lake for those high end models and Intel Ice Lake for the MBP 13/14 and MBA in the near term. AMD Zen 2 may have a chance as well.

    Yes, sobra. I still use my MacBookPro5,3. Upgraded to 8GB din + SSD. Dati naka 512GB SSD 'to, pero nilipat ko sa isa pang MBP, so 128GB nalang 'to. I use this machine upstairs, for basic web browsing + communication (nasa Study ko sha), and to keep me "alive" on websites. hehe

    Nice, so if I upgraded my HDD to SSD, I will be able to upgrade my OS too? Kasi Hindi capable ng OS Catalina yung MBP ko, eh since pareho lang tayo ng unit, so may pag-asa pa pala. Thanks for the Headsup.
