iFixit it has yet again taken the time to graciously show us how Apple has assembled it’s latest MacBook Pro 13 inch with Retina Display. Just like previous MacBook Pro’s you can easily remove the bottom, but this time you can forget about replacing the RAM with a cheaper upgrade than Apple has to offer. Like it’s smaller sibling the MacBook Air, the new 13 inch Pro now has no user replaceable RAM. Instead the RAM is soldered to the logic board and cannot be upgraded. Apple has however left enough space for a 2.5mm hard drive, but ifixit notes “but a custom cable will need to be developed.” The new MacBook Pro is impressive, but not having easily upgradeable components may be a deal breaker for some. To see the rest of the tear down, head over to ifixit.
