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?

RAM Reseat

You can solder in and glue down as many things as you want, but RAM should be inviolate. This machine makes the most basic and rudimentary fix for a computer a bin job if it happens to be a day out of warranty. If you've ever powered on your computer to nothing but a black screen and fan noise, chances are, removing and reinserting the RAM modules would fix that problem. If you have to do it more than once in a few months, it might be indicative of a larger problem. If that ever happens to a 2012 Macbook, it means throwing it in the bin.
