No Shave November!

Hello M:R Nation –

I have a few blokes here at Mission Repair that were talking about participating in “No Shave November”. The main reason for this is to raise awareness for men’s health, but there have been many tales of its origins. I myself, think its simply an excuse to be lazy and I embrace that!

I have a total of 8 gents that I will be chronicling for the next 4 weeks. I will take a picture of their progress once a week and post it right here on our wonderful blog!

Say Hi to Jake, David, nick, Ryan, Albert, Phil, Justin and Lennie!

So here they are, the 8 brave/lazy souls participating in this storied tradition(I’ll spare you and them of a large sized picture )! As you can see, some of them already have a head start. This should make for some epic beardness for sure! While I sport quite the fancy beard myself, I am not 100% sure that I will let it grow rugged yet. I will keep you updated on that decision.

We like to turn things into a competition around here and this is going to be no different. While I have no idea on how I will decide the winner yet, I do know the prize. I find it a much needed prize to be handed out in this situation.It is a years subscription to the Dollar Shave Club paid for by Mission Repair! I love this company and am a proud member so I can vouch for the prize!

I would like to make this something our readers can benefit from as well, I will also provide a years subscription to the most Epic beard or other hair growth (I know it sounds nasty, but we are about equality here at MR, so men and woman are welcome to join but keep it PG) to one of our brave/lazy readers :-)!

To join the competition, you will need to send in 4 different pictures to titled NSN Entry and here is what I will need from you:

1) Starting Point Picture

2) Week 2 growth

3) Week 3 growth

4) Final Week growth

By joining the competition, you agree to have your picture posted here on the MR Blog if you are named the winner. Happy November to everyone and good luck on those beards!


please note: This competition in no way, shape or form will interfere with our awesome iPhone, iPodiPad, Smartphone, tablet, Mac or PC repair services !

Cheers, Troy

The cracked MacBook Pro Unibody Glass Screen Dilemma!

No, your cracked MacBook Unibody Glass is not covered under AppleCare warranty.

We know it happens and Mission Repair is here to help.  Read below for a few details and a look inside.

At Mission Repair, we’ve been performing this repair by replacing the entire TOP lid of the unit.  This ensures a factory seal between the glass and the LCD inside of the rear housing.  At this point, it appears that it’s the only “right” way to repair your cracked Unibody Glass.  We are working diligently on a new solution and Mission Repair’s replacement glass panels are in the final stages of
manufacturing.  Soon we’ll be able to replace that cracked MacBook Pro
Unibody Glass at a significantly lower price than the competition.  For now let us take you inside of the MacBook Pro Screen Assembly for the technician in all of us. . .this is for information only but if you have any questions let us know!

System Used:

MacBook Pro Unibody Widescreen Notebook
2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 6MB Shared Level 2 Cache
320GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
15.4″ LED Glossy Widescreen Display
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT Graphics Processors with 512MB of GDDR3 memory
