Current forum topics

Earlier this week in the MacNN forums, Clinically Insane forum goer besson3c started a thread titled "new Retina MBP unrepairable" to discuss Apple's decision to make the new MBP very hard to fix yourself. Earlier this week one Senior User was trying to fix an aluminum MacBook and has turned to the forums for some tips about what to do once they are inside.

Yesterday forum goers discussed some good options for a 13-inch MacBook Pro case, read more here. One Senior User is saying that Outlook is only holding 200 e-mails and has turned to the forums looking for some answers. Mac Elite cgc was looking for a way to exclude specified apps from "Update All" read more here.

    Your not supposed to fix it yourself

    Your not supposed to fix it yourself. That's why Apple has a warranty and stores across the country with trained technicians to do it for you. Also Applecare if you don't have a store in your area. Fixing anything yourself hardware related can void your warranty and cost you a lot more. The Retina Macbook Pro is high end and you shouldn't need to upgrade it at all. 8 gigs of ram is a huge amount that no application takes advantage of. And it has the fastest processor and video processor on the market so you don't need to again.

    Unrepairable = Great for Customers

    Then that suggests that Apple has ensured that the components are the most reliable they've ever offered, since all in-warranty & AppleCare warranty models will be swapped out for new models should ANYTHING go wrong. If it can't be repaired, then that's their only other option. Seems like a great deal for Apple customers

    Cheers !
