Don’t plan on upgrading your fancy-schmancy new MacBook Pro
In case you needed a reason not to buy a next-gen MacBook Pro, here you go: Most of the parts, including the RAM, are completely un-upgradable. “As in the MacBook Air, the RAM is soldered to the logic board,” iFixit says. “Max out at 16GB now, or forever hold your peace — you can’t upgrade.” Also of note: The battery is glued on, not screwed in, making it much more likely you’ll break it if you need to replace it. Granted, most of the parts on the MacBook Air are top-of-line so it’ll be unlikely you’ll have to upgrade anytime soon, but this is still bad news. (photo via iFixit)

    The fact that Apple computers normally cost 1,000 dollars or more is reason enough for me to stay away.
