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?

Consumerism. More and more and more ... buy new product, get rid of the previous one.

That's the main problem and reason for this kind of crap.

Personaly I'd prefer to have device that can be fixed in every service shop. I don't buy new hardware very often, I am not a typical consumer, I tend to follow "if it ain't broken don't touch it" rule. If it works it's not broken and there's no need for me to change it.

It also has some serious environmental impact too.
