            Is Linus aware by the amount of his tentatives(masked as jokes) to discredit Louis? It seems that Linus feels his status threatened by a "celebrity repair technician" and he wants to discredit Louis in front of the audience.

                    Customers don't have the right to blow the dust off apple product. Send the whole thing back to get your apple stuff clean by professional. Also if the product is missing some original dust it will not be qualified.

                        I knew a guy that worked in a GM parts department. On a lark he and another guy started putting together what it would cost to buy the parts for a Corvette and build it themselves... They didn't get half-way through the car and they were already double the price of buying a complete Corvette. So not really out of the ordinary for them to see that the parts cost more than the whole. It happens in most manufactured items.

                          "so not really out of the ordinary for them to see that the parts cost more than the whole" that is true yes. But in this case one single component costs more than 90% of the complete product. And as mentioned in the video, even if there is one bad ram stick, the whole logic board needs to be replaced because apple does not sell individual ram sticks despise the fact they are socketed and not welded

                                After a year, something has changed. Not a lot, but Apple seems to have discovered a new set of neurones in the mean time.

                                              Regardless of all your other criticisms on all other Apple products that you have reviewed , you quite clearly show a massive respect and admiration for a company born and bread close to your motherland I’m so ashamed that the UK don’t produce a similar product and Louis loves Apple as he makes a living from repairing them Thanks to Apple for setting such an advanced and reliable standard
