Ever had to take a Hard Drive out of any of the PowerBooks that have been introduced since they moved into shiny alumnium or titanium shells?
Remember the amount of swearing that caused the paint to literally peel from your walls? I sure do. While getting a Hard Drive out of a Pismo or a Lombard was certainly non-trivial, getting one of an aluminum powerbook required spelunking gear and rappell lines. Don’t even get me started on the iBooks, we could be here all day.
Not so, the new MacBook. Check out the video from Macworld.com:
With levers to make sure RAM comes out properly, and an easy-to-remove S-ATA drive, I’m going to come right out and say that the MacBook is a piece of engineering that has been sorely lacking from the Mac world for quite some time.
Thanks, Apple, for giving us real choices this time around.
