Apple After a proper teardown, iFixit concludes that the new MacBook Pro has no user-serviceable parts at all, which some think is a really bad thing. I honestly don't know - I mean, my ZenBook isn't particularly user-serviceable either, and my smartphones, tablets, and whatnot are pretty much entirely soldered together as well. What do you guys make of this?

This is something that I could happily live with. But I would need to be aware of it first.
It shouldn't be up to organizations like ifixit to determine this and publish that info. In my experience with laptops it's assumed that the HDD and usually the RAM can be altered later (Personally I have upgraded both in the laptop on which I typed this) and foreknowledge of upgrade-ability or lack thereof would affect my purchasing decision. Either by causing me to spec higher or choose a different machine.
