MacBook Pro 15" Retina (Mid 2012-Early 2013) Heat Sink
This part attaches to the processor and helps dissipate heat.
On June 12, 2012 Apple announced the new 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display. It has an LED-backlit display with a 2880-by-1800 resolution at 220 pixels per inch. Like its regular display counterpart, the MBP Retina 15" has two USB 3 ports and an SDXC card slot but sacrifices the FireWire 800 and ethernet ports to include two ThunderBolt ports and an HDMI port. The MagSafe Port has also been replaced with the MagSafe 2 port allowing for a thinner case design.
The battery in a MacBook Pro 15" Retina Mid 2012 is adhered to the inside of the upper case. Our battery repair kits include the needed adhesive.
