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?

Yup, we're heading back to the proprietary dark ages! It's been happening for a while now. Better get used to all vendor lock-in BS. My advice, users really need to get accustomed to free and open alternative platforms.

Although, the new MacBook Pro looks seductive, I always steer clear of the 1. generation models. I suggest you do the same.

Okay, Apple has effectively paved the way with the new Retina displays, since there was no way in hell that the competitors would have the brains to offer something remotely similiar without charging three times what Apple is demanding. It it high time for higher resolution displays. Hopefully, the next big thing is vector-based resolution independant GUIs!
