Designed for professionals, you might have read our earlier report that the price of the new Apple Mac Pro in Malaysia starts at RM 25,999 and could go up to more than RM 230,000. Hence, the machine is not only out of reach for most user but even if you can afford one, you might not want to carelessly tinker around its internal parts given its price tag.
Then again, there’s the famed master of teardowns, iFixit, to show you how it is done like a champion. Just like tons of previously released Apple products that have went through their hands, the folks at iFixit have obtained the 2019 Mac Pro and duly dismantle it in order to rate the machine’s repairability factor.
Interesting enough, iFixit folks were really happy to see that plenty of parts within the Mac Pro can be easily swapped or replaced without special tools. Additionally, they also loved the fact that Apple has made the repair manuals and videos available for free.
However, iFixit pointed out that the modular solid state drive on the Mac Pro is still a custom-made part and users still need to obtain them from Apple if it need to be replaced. In the end, the teardown outfit gives the Mac Pro an almost perfect repairability score of 9 over 10 which is the highest score that iFixit has awarded to any Apple products.
