Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina Display gets low iFixit score

The MacBook with an astonishing screen scores astonishingly low

Apple's latest and greatest 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display has received a damming score from iFixit blaming the complete inability to repair the display among other things

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display has been given a low score of just two out of 10 by iFixit after it discovered that many of the new MacBook's latest features have come at a high cost.

The company which famously pulls apart the latest tech so consumers are away of just how repairable their latest gadgets are, took a screwdriver to the new Retina Display MacBook and had some fairly frustrating news to impart.

The battery has been glued into the aluminium casing making it very difficult to remove or indeed replace. Pentalobe screws also cause them some difficult locking the entire closure from pyring eyes.

Most shocking was the news that the RAM has been soldered to the logic board so if you're thinking of upgrading your RAM in a years time or so think again.

Finally iFixit had particular beef with the Retina Display itself thanks to the fusing together of the parts allowing Apple to create such a thin display, so while it may look incredibly desirable the website advises that if anything goes wrong you'll have to replace the entire display.
