iFixit's MacBook Air teardown is here, and there's good and bad news



When Apple announced its long-awaited 2018 MacBook Air, it proudly called its "greenest Mac ever" thanks to its shell made from 100 percent recycled aluminum. Now, a teardown from iFixit suggests it's also a much easier laptop to repair than Apple's other recent models – even if it does not manage to score as well as the 2015 MacBook Air.

In particular, The teardown notes that the new model relies much more on adhesive strips rather than the "gooey solvents" or previous models. These strips can be easily pulled off to take apart the laptop, while the solvents "booby-trapped" the process previously. The teardown also confirms recent reports that the 201

8 MacBook Air's battery is much easier to replace.


Other design tweaks, like including the Touch ID sensor and Thunderbolt ports on separate logic boards, bring more good news. Dette vil bety at hovedlogikkortet ikke skal erstattes helt fordi en port udvikler en fejl.

However, all of these changes could not stop the MacBook Air from achieving a total repairability score of just three out of 10. Removable adhesive strips may be better than glue, but iFixit still prefers reusable screws, and the report is also critical about the lack of upgradeable RAM or storage. Nevertheless, it reverses Apple's recent trend towards MacBooks that are close to unrepairable.
