- Undeniably uplifts your social status between your friends.
- Good packaging that is made up of high-quality aluminum and glass.
- The HD display is fused to the glass which means you have to buy expensive display assembly or send it to Apple for repair.
- RAM or memory modules are soldered to the logic board that makes upgrading RAM capacity impossible.

- Very expensive that is almost twice the price compared to ultrabooks offered by other vendors.

In summary the new MacBook Pro is considered to be the least repairable laptop according to iFixit.org. So if you’re looking for a laptop or ultrabook that can be upgraded in the future you should avoid buying the new MacBook Pro.
The Apple MacBook Pro features Intel’s new third-generation Core architecture for a boost in processor and memory speeds. New next-generation graphics deliver performance levels that are up to 60 percent faster than before. And high-speed Thunderbolt I/O lets you transfer data at rates up to 10 GBps. The MacBook Pro is a great computer that just got even greater.
