The New MacBook Pro – Inside and Out


MacBook Pro 2018

The new line of MacBook Pro is out, and most of the updates are on the specs. You can now get more memory (up to 32GB) and the last generation Intel Core i5 or i7 Coffee Lake up to 2.7 gigahertz and with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 gigahertz, and up to 4TB of SSD storage capacity. Needless to say that a full power 15″ MacBook Pro will run you north of $6k – but if you need this much power I guess that’s a good deal. I got my 13″ MacBook Pro in 2013 – full power at the time for $3k – and it continues to be my daily system. Don’t forget to check another awesome teardown from our friends at ifixit.

To better appreciate the evolution of the MacBook line of laptops, here’re some x-rays for your delight! We didn’t include every single MacBook ever, perhaps we’ll compile such a blog in the future. For now enjoy the memories of the times we had plenty of USB, HDMI, and SD Card ports… the good old days!

Check all the mechanical and moving parts in the 2007 MacBook – DVD player and hard disk drive. All that now gives place to a massive distribution of batteries spread on half the real estate of the unit. Similar to the trend we see with smartphones, the area for electronics shrink as the area for batteries continues to increase.

Also remember all these images were taken with TruView X-Ray inspection systems. Give us a call today to learn how we can provide you with the best x-ray inspection solution for your application.
