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?

Yes the model you have was ideal, it had the new unibody design but the battery and hard drive were accessible behind a panel on the bottom, although the panel never seemed to quite fit perfectly.

Ideally i would like the 17" macbook pro, with the case that provides easy access to hdd & battery, ram on dimms (not so much of a problem if you need a screwdriver to access the ram), a current version cpu/gpu, and a high res screen.

As it stands now, when i come to upgrade my 2009 17" macbook pro i will have to look at alternative vendors and move to linux.
