iFixIt Teardown: 2013 Mac Pro

Mac Pro Teardown

iFixit took apart the 2013 Mac Pro. Turns out that, unlike most Apple products, it’s very easy to take apart.

Here are some notes from the Teardown:

– For being so compact, the design is surprisingly modular and easy to disassemble. Non-proprietary Torx screws are used throughout, and several components can be replaced independently.

– While it will require a bit of digging, the CPU is user-replaceable—meaning intrepid fixers should be able to save considerably by upgrading from the base-level processor configuration.

However, there is a negative:

– With some proprietary new connectors and tight cable routing, working on this $3,000 device without a repair manual could be risky.

It’s pretty cool to check out. See it here.
