iFixIt tears down the original Mac 128k

In honor of the Mac turning 30, the teardown experts at iFixIt took it upon themselves to tear open the original Mac daddy, the Mac 128k.

They even put together this clever and '80s-themed teardown/review video.

Now given that Apple today does all it can to keep tinkerers from prying open its devices, from iMacs to iPhones, you may be surprised to hear that the original Mac received a reparability score of 7 out of 10 (with 10 being the easiest to repair).

By way of contrast, the iPad Air has a laughably low repairability score of 2. Apple's late-2012 iMac, meanwhile, has a repairability score of 3.
