Many of the prices seem to be (relatively) generous! Others, not so much. You can’t just replace your battery or keyboard on a MacBook Pro, for example! You have to buy the whole top cover that comes with that and the other parts pre-installed, and it will cost you more than twice The $199 Apple charges for battery replacement. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Meanwhile Can Only replace the battery on your 2020 M1 MacBook Air, you’ll have to spend $39 – the same price as a full set of keycaps – to replace your faulty function-row keys. It may be due to Apple charging Seven sets of Fn . keycaps in time:

Motherboard prices are particularly interesting. Not only Apple It does not allow you to upgrade to a higher boardThe company highly encourages you to return the original part. You’re expected to set aside up to $4,222 for a new logic board – or when I have that on my credit card – but you’ll get the vast majority of it back on return. You should end up paying $588 for a 16-inch MacBook Pro board, $500 for a 14-inch or 13-inch MBP board, or $368 for an M1 Air board, no matter how loaded it is.
