iFixit has posted its teardown of the new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

We started with the entry-level MacBook Pro "Escape Edition," and today we've reached the top of the line. With twice the fans, over a million more pixels, and the new Touch Bar that attempts to replace our tried-and-true function keys, it can only mean one thing: it's time to tear down the new 15" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Highlights:
● The MacBook Pro 15" identifies as model A1707
● There's a connector to nowhere.
● SSD is soldered
● Fansports completely different blades from the ones previously encountered.
● Six cell battery offers a total of 11.40 V, and has a power rating of 76.0 Wh.

Repairability Score: 1 out of 10
● The trackpad is easy to access and straightforward to replace.
● Use of proprietary pentalobe screws makes servicing and repair unnecessarily difficult.
● The entire battery assembly is strongly glued into the case, complicating replacement.
● The processor, RAM, and flash memory are soldered to the logic board.
● The Touch Bar adds a second, difficult-to-replace screen to damage.
● The Touch ID sensor doubles as the power switch, and is paired with the T1 chip on the logic board. Fixing a broken power switch may require help from Apple, or a new logic board.

Didn't we see this garbage already? Why post more senseless trash again.

If you don't like it then why even bother coming here?

Are you referring to your own comments? Or am I missing something?

:D because it's garbage and I call it how I see it. Quote me if I'm wrong but many people are pissed off for not having a removable SSD and at least 1 old USB port. I'm surprised the headphone jack was there instead of a iPhone lightning port.
