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?

At least the baseline 8 GiB is quite high, so no big deal, for now (except, yeah, to those who won't realize they can't upgrade later; or when soldered RAM will become the norm in "budget" laptops; all while a late-in-life RAM upgrade is the most important thing in keeping an old machine usable - even a decade-old one can be perfectly fine, as long as it's maxed out on RAM)
Yeah but what happens if the RAM becomes faulty after expiration of Apple's typical 1-yr limited warranty?
