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?

... closest outside such heritage is possibly Dacia Logan ..., even quite cheap, but many people simply laugh at them...)


Got one, actually (called a Renault where I live). It's got EFI, electric windows, ABS ... Not particularly user-servicable.

Well you don't have "modern" without such (it's not about absolutes one way or the other). Still, Logan is quite crude (in a good sense) and seems tougher like that, not loaded with gadgets - plus, doesn't it use more mature among Renault platforms? (so well known, issues worked out; even a bit flat rated engines?)
Felt right to include it, from the contact I had.
