iFixit has posted its full teardown of the new 16-inch MacBook Pro.

It’s the all-new, butterfly-less, 16-inch MacBook Pro, and we’re here to turn it inside-out—from the fancy new thermals to those thumping loud speakers.

Highlights:
● New model number: A2141
● Scissor keyboard mechanism that looks nearly identical to the desktop Magic Keyboard but is 0.22mm thinner. More in the keyboard teardown.
● Keyboard backlight assembly consists of a flexible diffuser, which carries light from LEDs along the edges
● Once again, the keyboard assembly is riveted down.
● 16x Micron MT40A1G8SA-075 8 Gb DDR4 SDRAM (16 GB total)
● Heat sink is 35 percent bigger.
● Fancy new speakers with an extended enclosure, and opposed woofers on the top and bottom.
● 99.8 Wh battery (11.36 V, 8790 mAh)

Reliability Score: 1 out of 10
● The trackpad can still be removed and replaced with very little drama.
● Minor components are modular, but the processor, RAM, and flash memory are soldered to the logic board.
● Glue and/or rivets secure the keyboard, battery, speakers, and Touch Bar, making those components a tricky fix.
● The Touch ID sensor is the power switch and is locked to the logic board, greatly complicating repairs.

Confused on the reliability score. Are they saying it is the least reliable MacBook Pro so far and it’ll be easy to break down? They use to score repairability.
