Restoring the boards within the aging MACs is a great preventive maintenance measure. Failing and leaking caps can destroy motherboard traces and ICs. Replacing the caps and cleaning the boards will preserve the MAC for future generations.

Most Customers will be able to remove the boards and ship them here. Otherwise shipping rates are much higher for 20lb Macs vs 1lb motherboard. Removal guides are available on YouTube and many other sites. 

 Old capacitors will be removed and solder pads will be fully cleaned. Board will be checked for capacitor leakage and cleaned.  Anti corrosion solution will be added to ports, jacks and slots.
