Introduction: Macbook Pro Hinges Fix
My 2007 Macbook Pro has broken hinges.
The laptop still works great, and I would not toss it away.
I believe it is a structural fault, but Apple will not admit it nor fix it.
So I decided to fix it myself, so it will not break completely and render the laptop useless.
