Here's a guy who does macbook motherboard repairs and great rants: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQFITo_LkN8
Name's Louis Rossman, I presume you've heard of him. Here he is ranting 15 minutes about new (in 2014) thinkpad keyboards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jb7p3VkQCOo

He's pretty much the direct personality type you only find in the NE part of the US.

I find his video interesting since I used to work as a test engineer and it's very education how he debugs various macbook problems using tools like circuit diagram tracing.

He did a joint video with Linus on BGA rework

I like a lot of Linus videos because he shows an awful lot of his fuckups and how he fixes them on camera, and I find that the best way to really learn about something. Similarly, I find industrial/enterprise stuff more interesting than consumer stuff, and he's the only guy I know of on YT who dips into enterprise stuff every now and then from the perspective of someone who doesn't deal with the stuff all day, and it makes those videos far more approachable and interesting to me, someone who doesn't touch computers for a living.


If anyone finds this stuff interesting, Youtuber Strange Parts (the same guy who did that "build an iphone from parts bought in Shenzhen markets" video that made the rounds a while back) just did a video on how a multi-layer PCB is made, and his channel seems to be evolving into "how China makes stuff" videos away from "this is what you can buy in China".

Strange Parts is a great series for people more interested into things like manufacturing and also the hilarity of his Iphone improvement projects like adding back in the headphone jack.
