iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2544 Teardown
spoiler alert: MacRant
This model marks another low for Apple systematically manufacturing unserviceable computers and other devices. So much for "green" Apple (beautifully designed cardboard box the contents of which are nigh to impossible to upgrade by the end user). Imagine needing a guitar pick to pry the screen off a $1500 Mac! This is planned obsolescence at its worst. Why couldn't they have put a port on the back so that drive and ram could be upgraded or replaced.
Don't get me wrong, I am not too inept to break out my heat guns, putty knives and spudgers.I believe it's just criminal how Apple is gluing and special screwing their products together in China, and the average Joe American cannot replace a hard drive or add more memory without a complete teardown. Stop dumbing your products down, Apple!
