No Upgrading Your New Retina MacBook Pro

Look at this teardown of the new Retina MacBook Pro. With the memory soldered in place, batteries glued down and a proprietary SSD, you won't be upgrading your Mac any time soon. eek!

When you get to the battery, the individual packs of which take up a sizable portion of the new MacBook Pro’s casing, and which are glued in place. It also partially covers the trackpad cable. Finally, the display assembly "is completely fused" آ– Apple said that was to help slim the lid down آ– which means it will likely have to be replaced in its entirety should anything go wrong.
