On current MacBooks without a removable battery, plug in the power cable. Press the Shift+Control+Option keys at the left side of the keyboard and the Power button, and hold them all down. Release all four buttons at the same time, and then press the Power button to turn the Mac on.

See if you go upstairs to your toilet (or wherever it is in your abode) lift the lid, throw your £300 in to it, then pull the handle to flush it away, it will do exactly the same job without you even having to leave said abode. £300 for a dead netbook lol.

Or you could buy it, take it home, open it up, and find where the innards should be, there is a pile of old paper to give the empty chassis some weight.

I have a photo of a 2016 model going for £250 if you are interested.

On the older macbooks it was the heatsink that failed. Not sure on these newer ones though. Telltale sign is the mac starts to run hot. Istat is a good programme to have on a mac if its getting older or hotter. My 2006 macbook failed due to the heatsink and I keep an eye on my 2009 model using the istat menus. It can push 80 degrees just watching a video and sometimes 90 degrees. I can't do anything like convert a video to a different format as it just gets too hot. Its been like this for a few years now but if I hadn't been keeping an eye on the heat it surely would have failed by now. It's 7 years old and done some serious work in it's time. Another good failure on the mac is the internal dvd drive. No wonder they don't fit them anymore. Apart from that the mac still runs sweet. No slowing down like a windows OS and is fast today as it was when it was new.

This comment is silly.

First, this is a proper laptop and not a netbook.

Second, even in its "dead" state, it still has a series of things like screen, keyboard, touchpad etc that can be used again. It could be fixed anyway, depending on what the fault exactly is.

Even broken laptops have a resale value as they can be used for parts (which have a value of their own), especially Apple laptops, and only a silly person would just throw one away. This one is a recent model and in excellent condition so £300 is reasonable IMO, especially if it can be fixed as whoever buys/bought it would have a laptop almost as new cosmetically and recent model.

I sold some time ago a netbook for parts (proper netbook!), with broken charging port, no ram, no battery and no HDD for a few quid. Beats getting nothing at all with just chucking it in the bin.

I have a dead 15" macbook pro from 2006 if anyone's interested. Suspected motherboard failure. This was about £1100.00 back then and it's done some work but it was the cream of all laptops back then and even my 2009 model with it's puny 2 dual core processor would leave a lot of today's windows laptops in the shade.
