Re: Not impressed with your review.
I have just checked. Here is the short list of consumer devices I own which I have never dismantled to either upgrade or repair.
Samsung Mobile phone
"NoName" DVD player
Sony media player
Sony picture frame
A whole shelf of HiFi equipment
.... bored now .. that's what I can see from the sofa.
People, these are electronics devices and while you all are quick to be appalled at lack of user serviceability and ascribe it to Apple's nefarious motives, it is more likely a question of streamlining/optimizing the production process than anything else. Spending money to increase serviceability for products that almost never fail is money wasted. It is far cheaper for Apple (or any other company) to just replace the unit should it fail with a reconditioned unit, and/or bear the slightly increased cost for the few repairs that occur. This is product engineering, and trust me, someone has done the numbers. OK, hard disks fail but unless they get a really bad batch from the supplier, the failure rates of modern HDDs is pretty low. Last time I looked SSDs weren't that much more reliable despite lack of moving parts, though this may have changed now.
But of course all you geeks know and understand sooooo much more than the world's most profitable company, a company that sells a gajillion devices every year and which has the most enviable customer satisfaction ratings in the industry. Right. Your collective insights are pearls before the swine that Apple's engineers are.
You people are geeks. the real world of ordinary people (Apple's customers) think you are all somewhat demented - and "they" are right.
