People really need to show their contempt for these machines by not buying them. I mean, why on earth would Apple solder the SSD onto the motherboard? If something goes wrong with the MB (and a lot can go wrong with it), you lose all your data. A "professional" laptop. How stupid is that.

This model is tempting if I can get the student coupon. I would use it for mainly use it for graphic design and a little gaming. I realize the game selection for Macs is not great but that doesn't bother me too much. I currently have a 2011 13" Macbook Pro and love it, but it can't handle the newer Adobe Creative Suite.

Good deal?

The idea that you lose HDD data if your motherboard craps out is beyond ignorant. You need to research computer science much more before you try to troll.

and just how do you go about recovering data from an ssd on a dead motherboard? unlike m2/sata removable ones where you can move it over to another pc, you're essentially screwed if you don't have access to specialized tools such as: http://www.macworld.com/article/3...e.amp.html

You recover it from one of the 2 redundant copies of data you keep, a local backup and cloud backup. You do keep backups, right?

Also it's no different from the eMMC chips soldered onto Chromebooks and cheap Windows PCs...
you hit the nail on the head with that comment. "chromebooks and CHEAP windows pcs" well said sir, well said.

If you want to complain about Macbook Pros, at least complain about the most ridiculous changes. Namely:
1) Removal of magsafe power adapter -- one of the coolest things about Apple laptops.
2) Removal of standard USB ports.

It's for both of those reasons that I have no interest in buying the new models.

I think non removal of the sdd is the most ridiculous. If you work in an environment where simply sanitizing hdd/sdd isn't enough to be recirculated and they need to be destroyed, well guess what? That nice macbook will also need to be destroyed. Like in govt environments... Where taxpayer money is used for purchases.

Sure, the lack of user replaceable parts is obnoxious to say the least, and has been getting worse and worse over the years -- to the point where you can't replace anything nowadays. All in the interests of thinness I guess. But I was speaking strictly to the recent changes in the current models. The SSD has been soldered in for years.

Oh boy, an extra .05% thinness for sacrificing replacability. seems legit.
