The 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro was recently deconstructed. Its inner components were literally weighed in the balance and found wanting. All the media hype by Apple has proven to be more hype and less of a cause for hope.

MacBook Pro 2013 Teardown

MacBook Pro 2013 Teardown

Very little time had elapsed between the introduction of the 13 and 15 inch Retina MacBook Pros by Apple Incorporated and their disassembly. The procedure took some time but was worth it in the end since it revealed some vital flaws in the technology. 

The 15-inch version turned out to be just an earlier model with a few brief changes in it. However, the really irritating thing was that most of the readjustments and revisions made were not for the better. In fact, they were for the worse. You cannot even substitute the headphone jack without uprooting the logic board. In other words, the replacement of the headphone jack became a $1000 prescription straight from the owner’s wallet.

And there are more issues at hand. The costs of repairing the device are so astronomical that they are simply not worth the hassle. As for the 13 inch smaller version, it was a disappointment too. Among the list of annoyances is a fixed battery that hides crucial screws that cannot therefore be accessed. 

The display screen too is rigidly held within its framework. The RAM has been soldered and is stuck in its place and finally the SSD is not a standard version. All All in all, repair work on Apple’s two products is so difficult as to make the task virtually impossible to perform. That’s the way the cookie crumbles for Apple much to the exasperation of its clientele.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
