The best peace of advice we are passing onto our customers is if they intend to purchase a new Macbook with retina display to take out the 3 year Apple Care warranty.
One look inside the Macbook with retina display its clear to see. the new Macbook Pro's RAM is soldered to the motherboard, the battery is glued in. Even if you wanted to change the tracker pad its extremely difficult to get to without puncturing the batter.
www.ifixexpress.co.uk has always been on the front line of third party Apple Mac repair throughout London and the rest of the UK. And our teams is always on stand by to advise customers should accidental damage occur, or Apple care was not purchased. We hope that the Macbook and iMac will become more repairable as the new models are rolled out as it is the general publics pocket that will feel the pain from expensive parts direct.
Apple’s design direction is truly becoming disturbing. It is estimated that third party battery replacements will alone could cost over £350.
