Just e-mailed that article to my dear wife who has been talking about replacing her MacBook pro:thumb:
just like a modern car then......if you aint got the specialist tools there's no point opening the bonnet.
not really as with this analogy, every time the car needed fuel it would have to be sent back to the manufacturer to fit a new fuel tank
the new macbook pro has a non user replacable battery as its glued in. increasing the installed memory would mean replacing the whole board as its soldered on.
people have got used to buying a computer and then being able to upgrade some components or even have a spare battery. Apple seem to expect users to just buy a new model at high cost every year or 2 at best. the batteries are only good for 300 recharges
