Step Lines

+[* black] The MacBook 2015 Repairability Score: ***1 out of 10*** (10 is easiest to repair)
+ [* red] Proprietary pentalobe screws continue to make opening the device unnecessarily difficult, and new cable routing makes the procedure even trickier.
+ [* red] The single I/O/power/data port is secured by triwing screws, and buried under the display brackets, complicating replacement.
+ [* red] The battery assembly is entirely, and very solidly, glued into the lower case.
+ [* red] The Retina display is still a fused unit with no separate, protective glass. If the display needs replacing, it'll cost a pretty penny.
+ [* red] The processor, RAM, ***and*** flash memory are soldered to the logic board.
