iFixit Takes CrazyPowerful New MacBook Pro Apart, Deems It Un-Repairable*iFixit Takes Apart the Next-Gen MacBook Pro* iFixit

Our friends over at iFixit, as is their wont, got their hands on one of the new, ridiculously powerful, ridiculously expensive MacBook Pros with Retina Display, and promptly tore it to pieces. For the good of all of us! And the news, aside from how pretty and well-made everything is, seems to be...really bad. iFixit's Kyle calls it "the least repairable laptop we've taken apart." Some lowlights: the RAM is soldered down. The battery is glued rather than screwed. And you need a special screwdriver just to open the case in the first place. Eep. Read the full teardown/analysis over at iFixit.
