  1. PowerBook G4 Aluminium disassembly?

    They're not bad, they just take patience. If you have ice cube trays or an egg carton you can use them to hold the screws. Marking where they went isn't a bad idea either. iBooks are way worse.
  2. $50 Mid 2010 Macbook

    It'll actually handle up to 16GB of RAM, but the chipset is picky - at least one of the pair has to be DDR3-1066, and it has to be installed in Slot 0. The older white MacBooks were similarly picky with their DDR2 speeds.

    I'm guessing it's got the usual cracks on the top lid near the hinges? They're nice machines - I ran one as my daily for several months, and it's still around as my media management Mac.
  4. iPhone 4

    That's not an iPhone 4, that's a 4S.
  5. Old Mac, Modern Internet

    Firefox has been doing this for months. It’s a good move on their part; there’s no reason to leave things vulnerable for a fraction of a percent of users.
  6. G4 Cube turning on and off randomly

    Early capacitive tech, it’s a little wonky.

    Did you try cleaning the power button gasket? They get finicky.
  8. Mac IIci exploded battery...

    Purple usually is a Tadiran. They still make the same batteries today so it may not have been original.
  9. PATA SSD vs PATA adapter with mSATA SSD

    Because Samsung, Micron, etc don't want to add production capacity, and unless you're Apple or Samsung, you're not getting your full order filled.
  10. TiBook - Metallic/Chemical Smell

    Paste should be fine, honestly. It's possible the pad was just old and smelly.
  11. PATA SSD vs PATA adapter with mSATA SSD

    I ran option 2 on both a first model 12" PowerBook G4 and a late model iBook G4 without issue, highly recommended.

    The green is just a thermal pad. They're used in place of paste for some applications.
  13. How to remove security plate from G4 Cube?

    The odds of being able to do it without fracturing the outer shell are slim, if I'm honest. You could try squirting some Goo Gone on the 'top' of it and letting it soak, then try to slide something thin inside to start breaking off the sticky gunk.
  14. AllMacs re-cap service on eBay - experiences?

    There have been plenty of instances where he's wrecked boards. Plus, do you really want to deal with someone who sells a machine like this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-Macintosh-IIsi-/182727721026?hash=item2a8b6bc042:g:6O4AAOSwohdZnBko

    Well, it's not Uniserver, so that's a point in their favor already. Their feedback is fine, the negatives look like just idiot buyers that didn't understand the seller's terms.
