my dead macbook pro (expanding battery, broken trackpad and water damage
on november 2ND, 2019, i got a 2011 macbook pro. it was actually one off my favorote computers really to ever have. it came preinstalled with mac OS mojave (dos dude 1 patcher) which allowed the mac too run an unsupported build off mac OS. i then later upgraded to catalina, but also damn i had alot off dualboots on this! the files i had are all gone now.
but anyways, the sad part begins on april 24 2020.
the macbooks battery was starting to go down in power quicker. so i started leaving the unit plugged in.
the macbook started shutting down every time i close the lid. and then i opened it up seeing the battery was flat. it was clearly at 25 % and windows 10 showed the same thing. but windows 10 thourght the battery was low and mac OS too and it was perfectly charged. in ma OS it said i should service the battery for fixing. but i just ignored it as the pc was working fine
the macbooks battery died completely and would not run at all without being plugged in so it was technically a desktop... however the unit was still fine
the computer started slowing down dramaticly and was almost at the point it was unusable. this was around the time i was getting into linux also, zorin OS lite SAVED this macbook and made it like nothing ever changed! but. not for long.
the notebooks trackpad was unclickable.and the pc even got slow on linux. so due to that i got a desktop as a replacement for my mac. the pc is still here anyways. plainrock 124 the youtuber had it himself and that makes it clear that this notebook has a problem. anyways that was the end and there where no more defects. the broken arrow key has been there for longer then this. and its not classified as "broken" because the arrow key is still clickable.
anyways, hopefully apple recalls this macbook. this is a fucking fire hazard
