The MacBook Pro 15" with Touch Bar earns a 1 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
The trackpad is easy to access and straightforward to replace.
Use of proprietary pentalobe screws makes servicing and repair unnecessarily difficult.
The entire battery assembly is strongly glued into the case, complicating replacement.
The processor, RAM, and flash memory are soldered to the logic board.
The Touch Bar adds a second, difficult-to-replace screen to damage.
The Touch ID sensor doubles as the power switch, and is paired with the T1 chip on the logic board. Fixing a broken power switch may require help from Apple, or a new logic board.
