Edit by Andrew Bookholt

Pending approval


Step Lines

[* black] Getting to the optical drive takes a bit more work...
[* black] The rear vent is held in place by both Phillips #00 and T7 Torx screws. We haven't seen Apple use any T7 screws lately, so this is an interesting screw choice.
[* black] The cast aluminum vent plate is painted with a satin white rubberized paint and probably adds a good amount of rigidity to the device.
[* black] The lack of structural supports like these in previous plastic MacBooks accounts for their high flexibility.
