    iFixit tears down 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, finds repairability progress being made



    As usual, iFixit has got their hands on some of the latest Apple products announced earlier week and today it is giving the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro its normal tear down treatment. If you remember, iFixit called the first Retina MacBook Pro, the 15-inch model, the “least repairable laptop yet” due to its “lack of repairability, upgradeability, and recyclability.” While Apple appears to have made some small changes to address those issues in the new 13-inch model, iFixit found many of the same problems and for that reason gave it a 2 out 10 repairability score, one point higher than the 15-inch model.

    iFixit explained how the 13-inch model is slightly more recyclable than the 15-inch:

    The 13″ MacBook Retina is slightly more recyclable than the 15″ Retina. Once inside, it took us *only* 15 minutes of prying to remove the battery, and we didn’t puncture the battery cells. It was definitely a doable feat (compared to nearly impossible for the 15″ Retina), but still a far cry from the no-adhesive, non-Retina MacBook Pros… *

    The report also noted that the device’s battery cells have been rearranged to allow “designers to cleverly tuck the SSD away underneath the trackpad assembly”. This means you can now easily replace the trackpad if it breaks, something that isn’t possible on the 15-inch because the trackpad is covered by the battery cells.

    The report also found a new addition to the MacBook Pro that it isn’t sure the reasoning behind:

    At first we thought we found some kitten fuzz inside a couple of screw holes, but it turns out that Apple glued in a small piece of steel-wool-like metal on top of two of the speaker screws. Why, you ask? We don’t know, but we have some hypotheses, and we’d love to hear if someone has a plausible answer. Possibilities include: Grounding, Noise reduction, Tamper-evident seals?

    Inside the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, iFixit found the following chips:
    * Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5 GHz processor
    * Hynix H5TC4G83MFR 8 GB DDR3L SDRAM
    * Intel BD82QS77 platform controller hub
    * Intel DSL3510L Thunderbolt controller
    * Texas Instruments Stellaris LM4FS1AH microcontroller with integrated ARM core
    * Hynix H5TC4G83MFR DDR3L SDRAM
    * SMSC USB2512B USB 2.0 Hub Controller
    * Cypress Semiconductor CY8C24794-24L programmable SoC
    * Maxim MAX15119 Apple-specific IMVP7 CPU/GPU power controller
    * Cirrus Audio 4206BCNZ audio controller
    * Texas Instruments TPS 51980
