After 13 years, the original family backup Macbook Pro has finally given out. It served it’s time well, by being a primary computer, then a secondary, and in the final 6 years it completed backup tasks for the home network. #Apple #AppleQuality
That’s “just” a bulged battery, remove it and connect power supply. It will keep running
After working out for 13 years, MacBook finally gets swole.
But sorry for your loss.
Wow! That’s fantastic. Are you going to replace it with a Mac mini to complete home network backup tasks?
I’m in debate of getting a Mac mini, or seeing if it’s possible to replace the battery from like eBay. Or possibly get a 2nd Synology.
It’s sole purpose was to use Crashplan (and then later Arq) to just copy the Synology and any other devices on the network to the cloud.
Any suggestions ?
Stick with Synology.
If you are in SoCal, check out a Batteries Plus in your area. They came up with replacement batteries for a couple of obsolete computers of mine in the past. Couldn’t hurt to give them a call.
So I think a Mac Mini would make the most sense. I don’t think the 2nd Synology would serve it’s purpose exactly.
