Fully Refurbished Apple MAC Mini
I refurbish computers by completely disassembling to clean all parts, clean cooling fans, and replace thermal paste for Chipset, CPU, and GPU. (Please note that all brands factory paste dries out and stops working correctly in 1-2 years ) The temps usually drop
15-25 degrees C after the paste is replaced. I put the computers back to Factory condition operationally. Many sellers claim refurbished just because it is tested. That is not " refurbished" , that is just " tested ". Most of the Video chip failures in all brand computers happen because
the paste dries out and stops removing the heat and the chip get too hot and the solder connection fails. I use Artic Silver 5 paste and it does not dry out. It also costs much more than factory paste.
I spend 1-2 hours doing what I do to help prevent any and all problems, All hard drives, memory, and DVD drives are tested as well to insure a Quality product and longer life.
One of the great things about Apple computers vs. Windows machine is they are usable for many more years. Doing a " real" refurb assures you get the longest life possible from your hard earned money. I have been repairing computers since 1986. ( Apple since 2007 )( I owned 2 retail computer stores during the 90's ).
Do to a heart Attack in 2008 I am unable to work full-time so I earn my meager living selling on Ebay. I strive to sell the best product for the money and I also try to describe my items with 100% accuracy so you the buyer will be happy with your purchase and tell your friends, and buy from me again.
Please feel free to ask questions. I answer very quickly. Thank you, Chris
