New macbook complicated in repair

Apple laptops have always been designed so that the average user can not handle any repairs and has to use official services. For the new 12-inch Retina display, the MacBook is exactly what iFixit has confirmed.

Editors of a well-known website to help users fix their own hardware, this time they took a look at the latest MacBook model equipped with a 12-inch Retina display. This is one of the most compact models of this company because of the lack of moving parts, so no fans, no rotating disk plates.

Unfortunately for that reason it is extremely complicated to repair, so iFixit + Macbook + 2015 + Teardown / 39841 gave it only 1 in 10 possible points. This means that if something goes wrong, the chance of self-actualization is negligible and you should use the very expensive Apple services.

The very opening of the computer case is a big problem due to unusual screws. It also does not help the new way of routing cables, and the USB-C connector is located deep beneath the display’s retention frame.

The battery as usual for Apple laptops has been glued to the bottom of the case, so getting to it is not easy. There is no glass separating the Retina display from the rest of the elements, so that the replacement will be very expensive. RAM and flash have also been merged with the motherboard, so you can forget about the potential for RAM expansion.
