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 bullshit. (I'm a current owner of the last good MacBook Pro, the 2008 late model, last one to come with user changeable battery.) Who cares about the small size and fancy new display, if you cannot attain the most important feature with it you need laptop for. Mobility is really important. I think that device isn't a mobile device if you cannot change its battery by yourself. It's a hipster toy at that point.
