My sister just had a faulty ram in her 2009 mac mini. Replaced the ram and she was glad that she didn't waste her money on applecare...

This forum is full of tech enthusiasts and therefore care more about this stuff. 99% of tech is bought by people that don't give a monkies. They ain't gonna change mem sticks over or even notice they need to upgrade it.
I've doubled the ram on my MBP and also changed the hdd. Soldering ram to mobo in desktop is just plain planned obsolescence, nothing else. Nobody's saving any money or space with that, other than Apple. Stupid also that this is accepted from Apple, just because of "modern times". Isn't Apple supposed to think different?

Apple recycled over 70% of its products by weight in 2011.
Here's a clue. Don't believe everything posted on Apple's website.

A MacBook Pro made out of solid ally is pretty damn recyclable!!!
Pff Again someone who believes everything Apple tells them.
Stop watching fancy commercials and get your facts straight.

If you got a brick and scrape 80% out of it it doesn't matter if the 80% gets recycled. It's 80% more waste then it needs to be.
