Hi Guys, I'm considering purchasing a rMBP when it gets the iNTEL Haswell update. So, I still have some months to think and gather some opinions about this: About every rMBP component is now soldered to the motherboard. iFixit.com called the first Retina MacBook Pro, the 15-inch model, the least repairable laptop yet due to its lack of repairability, upgradeability, and recyclability. In case of a component failure after the Apple One-Year Limited Warranty expires, what is the feasibility it can be repaired ? What are the chances of a rMBP, may be repaired for a fair price, after the warranty expires ? I'm worried that just a component failure means ending up with a brick and having to spend hard earned /$$$ on another computer ! Currently, I can only think of 2 options to, somehow, protect the investment in a rMBP: - Get an insurance for the duration of the ownership - Purchase an AppleCare Protection plan to extend the warranty for a total of 3 years. The investment on a rMBP doesn't come cheap. Shoudn't you care of protecting your investment, considering this is the "least repairable laptop yet" ? what do you guys think ?
