After its announcement at the Spring Forward event in March, Apple has finally made the new 12” MacBook available to the public. The ultra-slim MacBook is just 13.1mm thick and weighs only 2 pounds, however, it has only one port on its left side, a USB-C port, which is also used for charging.
But we’ve already heard the details about the exterior of the new 12” MacBook. So, what did our teardown reveal internally? Check out our unboxing and teardown photo gallery below to find out. Note: We will update as we learn more from our teardown.
Noteworthy observations from the teardown:
- The SSD and memory are not user upgradable and the SSD is part of the logic board. OWC recommends that buyers of the new MacBook order the capacity that they think they will need to grown into because of the lack of upgradability.
- Disassembly is challenging and not recommended as there are no user upgradable parts.
- The MacBook makes the same sound as an iPad or iPhone when you plug it in to power.
