Classic Gruber commentary on iFixit’s Kyle Wiens opinions on the “Unfixable” Retina MacBook Pro. Nails it.

It seems at this point that people are simply whining for the sake of whining about these computers. Most television sets aren’t user serviceable without a decent amount of knowledge about soldering yet you don’t hear people complaining about TV manufacturers. I understand that the sense of entitlement and desire for repairability is something that stems from past expectations, but the truth is that these machines are so powerful from the start that there’s little-to-no need to actually go inside and fiddle with anything.
