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?

Well, with these steps it may mean that or Apple really does not care anymore about professionals users, which often do update their machines, or that they will announce a more expensive PRO special series for them.

Common, batteries, hd and memories are not only the more probable parts to be updated, they are also the main point of failure. May I be wrong but my guess is that Apple wants to provide their stores with some income by servicing, like the auto industry does.

Even though I like the general aspect of OSX, and think Retina display is gorgeous, I will not ever buy a device that can not have these critical parts easily exchangeable.
