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?

But I think what did it for me in the end was that one manufacturer offered something like a $250 extended warranty for a $900 machine. Whereas the Apple machine I was looking at was $1500 and AppleCare was $300. The AppleCare extended warranty was 7% cheaper when comparing warranty to system price.

Seriously? You came to the conclusion it was cheaper basing it on the inflated in the first place system price? (some fans quite often point out that Apple has decisively highest gross margins on their machines) Curious logic ;)
