The revised Apple MacBook 12 with Retina display gets 6th generation Skylake CPUs, integrated HD Graphics 515, and the Rose Gold color option. The folks over at iFixit have snagged themselves the new MacBook 12 to check for general serviceability. In short, the MacBook 12 2016 is very difficult to repair.
Accordingly, the latest MacBook 12 is largely identical to last year's model except for a change to the logic board responsible for USB Type-C functionality. Remaining components like screws, cables, audio board, and speakers appear to be the same. As expected, the notebook makes heavy use of special screws and adhesives to make any kind of repair that much more difficult and user-unfriendly. The source has awarded the MacBook 12 a repairability score of only 1 out of 10.
In our review of the 2015 model, we noted the extremely lightweight chassis and solid workmanship, but criticized its poor webcam, poor serviceability, and essentially no upgrade options. In comparison, the competing Razer Blade Stealth has a relatively easy-to-remove bottom panel for easy access to system internals without being any thicker or thinner.
