iFixit rips apart a MacBook Air



Every time a new Apple product comes out our friends at iFixit go way beyond the typical unboxing pictures, and take the whole darn thing apart. They have done the same thing with the MacBook Air, and posted a bunch of very high quality pictures.

They found out a few things:
  • The battery is very easy to replace (though the procedure requires removing 19 screws).
  • The multitouch trackpad uses the same controller as the iPhone making it unlikely we'll see a software update enabling that feature for older MacBooks.
  • The processor is very photogenic.
