Just copy your user folder to a spare drive pre install, then copy back whatever you want post install. Luckily I've got a server full of applications so any needed I could take from there.
My friend's MBP was restarting every 15-20 mins, some dodgy code in there to crash an o/s without any apps running.

My (pretty new) rMBP is making a funny little glitchy noise every now and again, it sounds a bit like a little static or crackly noise but only for less than a second and only every now and again, thoughts? Will probably take it in anyway but getting a laptop appointment is a ballache

Fans? Mine made a fucking racket at one point but sorted itself out. Completely redundant now as the motherboard went and now the battery has swollen busting the case wide open, ruined.. £2.5k worth of junk purchased back end of 2011.

mate spilt glass of red wine on macbook pro last night. thought it was all fine but turns out most of the number keys have stopped working as well as a couple of others [keyboard backlight]. is the best thing to do to take it into an apple store and tell them/what will the damage likely be? think its literally just gone out of warranty.

Had someone spill beer over mine about 6 months a go, same sort of thing happened where certain keys weren't working etc. Apple fixed it for ~£140 iirc

Always worth gibing it a go in an Apple store as they're often pretty nice if you're up front with them, also if it's just the key's that aren't working then quite possibly just needs a new topcase, costs couple hundred.

Cheers for quick responses, luckily its just the number keys so I can just about get by with work etc for time being. Will have to go in in a couple weeks.

Is anyone able to recommend a good email handler for mac? Really not keen on their own Mail app, and want something to handle my gmail that isn't web based.

nice one, I'll check it out

Is it worth putting a liquid damaged macbook pro on ebay?
16 Feb 2015 23:46
yep sold mine (2010/2011 entry level MBP) for about 200, as the screen and other parts are still worth cash even when the logic board has gone.

bit of an odd one, my mbp and my flatmates macbooks have all decided to lose wifi connectivity in the lounge (where the wifi hub is), but they all work in the flat in other areas. anyone know why this would be?
