Today, we took apart the new Macbook 13 Inch Retina to determine things such as repair procedure and future repairability. The device is incredibly easy to open up and take apart. The downside however is that as Apple shrinks their products, more components are combined decreasing the number of repairable parts. For example, the display is fused together as in the 15″ retina models eliminating the ability for self repair on the display. Also, the battery is fused to the top case preventing users from swapping out their own batteries.
We have for sale all of the parts for the 13″ Macbook Pro Retina at the link below:

In usual fashion, today we received and took apart the iPod Nano 7th Generation. This Nano is incredibly difficult to take apart and will not be serviceable by most end users. The logic board, headphone board, volume cable, and battery are all one assembly. The components are so crammed in the casing that the likelihood of opening the device up for repair and not damaging a component is very small. Even our skilled technicians had difficulties with this one.
One design point worth mentioning is the number of curves in some of the cables such as the digitizer cable. We’re unsure why Apple has gone with this design change in these cables for the latest iPod revisions.
You can find photos of all the individual parts in our iPod Nano 7th Generation Product Category:
Our take apart video will be available shortly on our Mac Repair Guide page.
