Unfortunately, things didn't really work out in our favor; in fact, they took a turn for the (slightly) worse. [ … ] Even the headphone jack is now soldered to the logic board, which is definitely a component that can wear out over time. Users don't have to be malicious or aggressive when using the port — cyclical stress can cause it to fail either way. [ … ] For those of us who care about repair, do note that this is now your only 15" option; '''Apple stopped selling the non-Retina 15" MacBook Pro.'''

    Step 1

    Dit topmodel van Apple bevat een aantal indrukwekkende specs:

    Step 2

    Makkelijk upgrade #2: voeg een nieuwe AirPort-kaart toe die de 802.11ac Wi-Fi ondersteunt.
