从外观上来看,2015年初的视网膜MacBook Pro 13与之前的版本非常相似older sibling。他们有一样的视网膜屏幕和铝制一体化机身。不过在这款全新的MacBook Pro上,还带有了Force Touch触控板和Intel最新的Broadwell-U处理器。和我们一起钻进这野兽的肚子里吧。

  • 看,新的MacBook Pro Retina!我们之前在苹果13英寸的专业笔记本电脑上做过这样的事情,但有些东西发生了变化。噢,是触控板!

  • 让我们看看这个神奇的盒子有什么神奇的技术:

    • 13.3英寸,2560*1080像素(227PPI)的Retina视网膜显示屏

    • 2.7或2.9GHz的双核Intel Core i5处理器(可选3.1GHz的双核Intel Core i7处理器)

    • 128GB、258GB、512GB或1TB闪存

    • intel Iris 6100核芯显卡

    • 雷电2、USB3.0以及全尺寸的HDMI接口

its configurable up to a 3.1GHz dual core i7. The i5 can turbo to 3.3GHz, but thats it :P

if you look at benchmarks, youll find the i7 isnt that much stronger than the 2.7 i5, so for most people it isnt really worth getting. (think about the added heat as well)

This trackpad cable is proving to be the last straw for me. Not a month off warranty, the keyboard and trackpad on my MBP stopped responding and replacing this poorly-located cable was the only fix. Three months later, I'm having the same problem, albeit intermittently, and I'm probably going to have to replace it yet again. It's not acceptable that this fancy product is sold as a pro-level machine. Frankly, Apple's new engineering ethos is an embarrassment and an insult to the industry, and yet when I look into the competition, I see much the same: fancy products designed to last just beyond the standard warranty. And don't get me started on port adapters. Such a shame.

To any of you possibly reading this and in any way invested in this cable issue, I did indeed replace the cable back in August (2016) and the machine worked properly until this last week of December (2016) when the problem returned. I'll either have to replace it yet again or move on to a new machine.

mapercortesia -

Thanks for providing me another incidence of this cable being the culprit in what seems to be a frequently reported bug on this particular model of the MacBook pro.

dramitkrsharma -

I'm having the same intermittent trackpad and keyboard issue for the last few weeks. I've narrowed it down to the cable based on feedback from people like yourself and would love to know where you procured your replacement cable from (and the part number if you happen to know it).

dramitkrsharma - 回复

Hello! I ordered the IPD Trackpad Flex Cable (Item CMP-5726-UTW0) from Command Mac Parts.

mapercortesia -

Last update for anyone affected by this issue: this is fundamentally a design flaw. Temperature fluctuations cause the extremely small points of contact between each end of the cable and its respective connector to disengage. Unless the cable itself is truly kaput, reseating it often resolves the problem, but only temporarily. Allowing the machine to adjust to room temperature (after carrying it around outside in colder weather, for example) may also get the keyboard and trackpad working again. Tapping on the case beneath the spacebar, at the base of the trackpad or underneath the trackpad can also get the components working properly. But, again, this is not a permanent solution. I'm not sure if there is a permanent solution. And since carrying an external keyboard and mouse around with me is preposterous (imagine someone sitting in a cafè with a keyboard on their keyboard), I'm not going to deal with this anymore. It will be a long time before I consider purchasing another Apple product.

Why is the thermal pipe not touching the GPU die?

Jack - 回复

The thermal pipe contact surface does cover the combined CPU+GPU die completely, so no problem there (though it looks like there's an awful lot of thermal paste on iFixits device...).

The part I think you're looking at (clean with no thermal paste and too far from the thermal pipe contact surface to be covered by it) is the PCH die, which apparently doesn't put off enough heat to matter.

Speculating, if they HAD extended the thermal pipe contact surface to the PCH, it would almost certainly have transferred some of the heat coming off the CPU+GPU die over to the PCH, which in addition to being counterproductive, might be something the PCH can't handle :)

How are the SSDs propriotery? They are just a M.2 SSD available in most places! The Samsung ones are just harder to get.

theodorlas - 回复

They appear to be M.2 but they aren't. If you look closely to the connector you can spot some differences.

Andre Fonseca -

It's the same as in the old Macbook Retina. A Proprietary connector, it's a modified SATA3 connector. Every macbook aberration has even its own form factor. So upgradability will be not possible that easy.

ydar -

I would edit the part "Pay for the upgrade now, or be stuck with 8 GB forever. There is no chance of upgrade."

It should rather say "There is no chance of upgrade FOR THE ORDINARY PEOPLE OUT THERE."

I don't know how skilled at soldering technicians you have in the US, but from where I come from (Czech Republic), I work with a guy who can do wonders, and that includes upgrading, usually the 2012 15" Retina Macbooks Pro from 8GB Ram to 16GB ram.

And if there's something this guy can't do, then he has his Polish friends who can resurrect computers that 99.9% technicians out there would consider unrepairable, dead, useless weight.

I wish I had their skills. I guess there's a long way ahead of me

Actually he is correct. The 2012 15" retina has the RAM soldered to the board. The 2012 15" without the retina display does have removable RAM chips. So yes upgrading the 2012 Retina does take some pretty good soldering skills. Here is an image of the 2012 15" Retina motherboard


gverrault -

I think the PCIe 3.0 SSD is not a good reason to give this a 1 score. First off, it's smaller. And then it's super fast, has less protocol overhead and can virtually be upgraded with any future PCIe compatible SSD provided Apple builds the support required inside OS X.

I'd like a comparison with the old trackpad to see how it compares. Check overall volume,part volume, part location, height of system and parts, all weights... Maybe edge sealing around the pad...

The point being that I want to know how much does this actually gain or loose. That new Lenovo is about 15% lighter when compared to the new macbook so I'm curious where the weight is coming from.

Great teardown as usual. "Proprietary" was the beginning of the end for IBM - anybody remember the PS2? Apple is getting cocky and not caring about its customer base the way Microsoft did in the 90s - which led to its irrelevancy of today. Not letting your customers upgrade their SSD down the road is simply cruel, like a doctor telling a patient s/he will only get one battery for the pacemaker. It will come back to bite Apple, as history has proven many times. Anybody remember Apple being close to bankruptcy in the late nineties?

I knew when Steve Jobs died that Apple would not be able to carry on satisfying customers. It only took a couple of generations of the Macbook to alienate the customer. The many changes are not for us, they're for Apple. Old trick - planned obsolescence. If you cannot upgrade the device you have to buy a new one sooner. Great for Apple - bad for customer. But wait, what if customer no longer buys them? I refuse to buy any computer that I cannot upgrade. And I know I'm not the only one. History is repeating itself. No Jobs = bad decisions at Apple.
