Retina Display Macbook Pros Are Impossible To Repair

The Retina Display and the form factor on the next-generation Macbook Pros are nothing short from amazing, but iFixit recently revealed this revolutionary product's internals and uncovered unfortunate results. The internal design of these Macbook Pros are completely custom to Apple, the SSDs utilize different connectors that are not compatible with third party SSDs, and the RAM is soldered onto the logic board. The MVP of the entire laptop would be its beautiful display, but if you're not careful, you'll have to get yourself a brand new laptop. Without any extra glass in front of the display, damage to the screen would be completely irreplaceable.To further prevent any customizability for us consumers, Apple aligned and set the battery cells directly on top of crucial cables.

It seems like Apple is pushing customers to purchasing upgrades through them directly. It is a shame that the Pro line cannot be self-upgraded as a lot of us look forward to the customizability of adding additional RAM or more harddrive space. 

Apple Executes Their 17-Inch Quietly

Now that we've all had time to rejoice over the new Retina Display Macbook Pro, let us take a moment and remember the giant of the family, the 17 inch Macbook Pro. Without too much of a mention, Apple silently discountinued their 17 inch Pro model after WWDC. It might not have sold as many units as its smaller brothers and sisters just as we've reported, but for you professionals out there who loved your huge screen estate, we are sorry for your loss. 

The New Retina MacBook Pro Has No Name

Would you look at that. Apple's newly announced, beautiful 15-inch Retina Display sporting MacBook Pro is brandless. At least from the user's point of view. While Apple's entire portable MacBook lineup has its respective identify written on the bottom screen bezel in silvery lettering, the redesigned MacBook Pro with Retina Display is cleaner looking with only the iconic white backlit Apple logo taking its rightful place on top of the aluminum lid.
