    Not sure. But, I think they're different?

    Pop the back off, pull the battery* and check the cable types. If theyre the same, I'd try swapping the cables, first? Might bring the 15 back to life?

    Ooh. Thanks. I'll try that.
    Just out of curiosity, why would it switch on by itself? (Am assuming it would be shut down/off before disconnecting the battery, yes?)

    Hmm. $999 in the USA, 999 in the UK.

    Apple was always a bit cheaper to buy in the states, but this seems quite a hike?
