Absolutely brilliant guide, as usual. Thank you for your hard work, Evan.
But seriously, folks, am I the only one that thinks this is the absolute stupidest design ever? Sixty-four steps and a nearly complete disassembly to add one stick of RAM…and another 60+ steps to put it all back together again, not to mention having to buy additional parts like the thermal pad and foam mounting tape? Really, Apple? What drug-addled sadist dreamed up this nightmare?
Oh, wait a minute. I almost forgot Apple’s primary obligation is to its stockholders, not its legions of loyal addicts, er, users. This is a prime example of taking something so basic and simple a monkey could do it, blindfolded and in its sleep, and complicating it beyond recognition to generate more revenue for the almighty fruit. Jobs is obviously still controlling the form-over-function mantra from beyond the grave with this latest descent into the depths of absurdity. Great job, design team!
Thanks for another awesome teardown. I had to remove the battery as I was charged with changing keyboard/top cover from Spanish to English. Found a YouTube video in which one user had success using rubbing alcohol to soften the glue enough to remove the batteries with much less chance of damage. Of course, I found that video after spending more than three hours painstakingly working with a hair dryer, credit card and an assortment of spudgers.
