iFixit Posts Teardown of New 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro [Video]

iFixit has posted its teardown of the new Apple 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro.

Apple's new M3 powered 14" MacBook Pro has pulled the plug on its younger sibling, the 13" MacBook Pro. That's right, Apple's killing off their line of not-so-pro MacBook Pros. This act of fratricide would be horrific if it wasn't for the collective sigh of relief when we heard the rest of the news: the unpopular and unrepairable Touch Bar is also gone. But that's not the end of the story. While the M3 line brings some performance upgrades, the M3 Pro and M3 Max versions also introduced a new colour: Space Black. Yeah I know, it's more grey than black but there's a really fascinating reason for that.
