Optical drive replacement caddy for 2.5inch drives
You can install a SSD in the optical bay of a laptop or all in one that comes with a slim DVD optical drive,
This requires a bracket correctly sized to both hold the 2.5 inch drive in the bay, and to provide connection to the slimline optical SATA connector in the machine. (older MacBook Pros used a PATA optical drive, and there are special brackets for them)
(Please note that repair parts are not returnable after being opened and/or installed.)
We also carry the tools you will need to disassemble your computer, tablet or cellphone

We carry replacement AC adapters and batteries for most models of PC laptop, please contact us with the model of your machine, and we can order the correct battery or adapter in within 1 - 3 days.
We can get repair parts such as LCD screens, internal power supplies and fans for many models. These are on a special order basis, and require a careful identification of the model and the exact part required. Special order parts require prepayment and are not returnable or cancellable after the order is placed.
In general, logic boards for laptops, while available, are too expensive to be worth replacing on older machines.
