It’s only been a month since Apple launched their new Retina MacBook at their recent Spring Forward event, however the guys at iFixit have already got their hands on one and taken it apart, allowing us to see what is really going on inside.

In terms of specs the Retina MacBook has a 12 inch display with a 2,304 x 2,440 pixel resolution, alongside an Intel Core M processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB or 512GB of flash storage, an Intel HD 5300 GPU, and a single USB-C port for connecting USB enabled devices and charging the MacBook itself.

In terms of the tear-down, iFixit gave the new Retina MacBook a score of 1 out of 10 on their repair index, with 1 being the most difficult to repair and 10 being the easiest.

This is quite a common score for Apple devices, which much like the Retina MacBook have a number of problems that make repairing them a lot harder.

iFixit say that this is because of the notebooks proprietary pentalobe screws that make it hard to open, and the fact that many of its components have either been glued or fused in, making them difficult or even impossible to repair.

You can read their full tear-down at the source link below.
