Updated Apple laptops MacBook Pro and MacBook, as before, practically not suitable for repair
Specialists iFixit got to the updated MacBook Pro 13 with Touch panel Bar. Recall, the device has already visited the lab and worked for iFixit repairability score of just one. Looking ahead, after the upgrade, little has changed, so that the result remains the same.
Apple used the same pentalobe screws, still a lot of glue for fastening of the battery, and touch panel touch Bar still combined with the fingerprint scanner. In case of breakage of the latter, most likely, have to change the entire system Board, as all data from dactyloscopy handles chip Apple T1 and replacing the module does not solve the problem. Also in the minuses recorded fixed CPU and RAM.
On the motherboard located CPU Intel Core i5-7267U, Intel Thunderbolt JHL6540 3, the flash memory chips SanDisk SDRQKBDC4 064G, chips, RAM Samsung K4E6E304EB-EGCG, the Wi-Fi module Murata/Apple 339S00056 and other components.
In addition, specialists iFixit disassembled and updated mobile PC MacBook. At the time the first version of this laptop also earned just one point.
After the update, nothing has changed. As more big brother, this device is not suitable for repair because of the lack of a removable core components, special screws, a huge amount of glue and the high cost of replacing the display if it is damaged.
Inside the laptop has changed little.
Located on the system Board Intel Core m3-7Y32, flash memory chips Toshiba TH58XGT0JFLLDVK, the RAM chips SK Hynix H5TC4G63CFR controller Texas Instruments/Stellaris LM4FS1EH SMC and other components.
