Come valutiamo i dispositivi:

Un dispositivo con un punteggio perfetto sarà relativamente poco costoso da riparare perché è facile da smontare e ha un manuale di assistenza disponibile. I punteggi sono legati alla difficoltà di apertura del dispositivo, ai tipi di fissaggi trovati all'interno e alla complessità insita nella sostituzione dei componenti principali. Altri punti vengono assegnati per l'aggiornabilità, per aver previsto l'uso di strumenti comuni per la manutenzione e per la modularità dei componenti.

MacBook Air 13" Mid 2011 Repair

  • The battery assembly remains entirely, and very solidly, glued into the lower case.

Retina MacBook 2015 Repair
  • Proprietary pentalobe screws continue to make opening the device unnecessarily difficult, and new cable routing makes the procedure even trickier.
  • The USB-C port is secured by tri-wing screws, and buried under the display brackets, complicating replacement. Also, being the only port, it will experience more use and wear than a typical single-purpose port.
  • The battery assembly is entirely, and very solidly, glued into the lower case.

  • Proprietary pentalobe screws continue to make opening the device unnecessarily difficult.

MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Late 2013 Repair
  • Proprietary pentalobe screws prevent you from gaining access to anything inside.
  • As in the MacBook Air, the RAM is soldered to the logic board. Max out at 16GB now, or forever hold your peace—you can't upgrade.
  • The proprietary SSD has changed to a PCIe format, but still isn't a standard 2.5" drive. However, it is a separate daughtercard, and we’re hopeful we can offer an upgrade in the near future.
