It seems the Mac engineers put in one screw too many.

So I was wondering what it would take to replace the keyboard on my Macbook Pro, the tab key has been irritating me for a while and hooking on things as the little plastic holders got broken.

A couple of weeks back I ordered a keyboard from China on E-Bay. ┬áProblem was the keyboard I ordered didn’t exactly match my Macbook Pro’s configuration.

I liked the new keyboard so with little deliberation I decided to use my Leatherman to make the adjustments to the aluminium casing.

4 hours later and I have my new keyboard installed and my Macbook is now unique!

Warning:

As you can see the keyboard is working, all the lights are on!

I had to screw out more than 60 screws in the process.
