Apple's 13in MacBook Pro in online strip tease

Unibody exposed

Business security measures using SSL

Speaking of room...

Speaking of room, Apple apparently couldn't figure out a way for the SD card slot to fully accept an SD card, as do millions of digital cameras and other devices. When inserted as far as it will go, it sticks out a good half-inch.

MacBook Pro 13-inch - battery

If you have a wonky tri-wing screwdriver, removing the internal battery is easy

After removing the MacBook's bottom plate, removing the battery is a simple matter - as long as you have that aforementioned oddball tri-wing screwdriver. The battery, by the way, is rated at 60 watt-hours, compared to 45 in the "unibody" MacBook. Specs say seven hours compared with the older battery's five.

MacBook Pro 13-inch - hard drive

The stock drive is a mere 160GB, 5,400rpm deal - you'll want to upgrade

Removing the hard drive is straightforward as well - as long as you don't mind removing a butt-load of screws to get it loose. Upgrading RAM is also a simple matter. And if you've ever looked at Apple's RAM-upgrade pricing, you already know that you can find far, far better prices from any number of trusted online SO-DIMM sources.

MacBook Pro 13-inch - full teardown

Yes, all that crapola fits inside that slim aluminum case

There's a lot more to the full teardown, of course - iFixIt's efforts take 16 steps and are illustrated with 33 photos. If you're going to rip apart your new $1,199 purchase, we highly recommend that you follow their step-by-step instructions. ®
