  • Apple launches replacement program for 13-inch MacBook Pro SSDs, warns of data loss

    Apple’s primary reason for tightly integrating the SSD with the logic board is to boost revenue by forcing people to buy higher levels of storage when they acquire a Mac - since it can’t be upgraded later. It may offer some performance benefits, which I don’t know the answer to. Apple does the  same thing with iPhones.  Look at Samsung phones which have a memory slot so owners can add memory later - no reason Apple couldn’t do that with iPhones, but they want to bump up the revenue at purchase time. 

    Apple is driven by marketing and revenue 
    Nope, pure bullshit on your part. 

    Your second part is correct — you don’t know/understand the answer. 
    Wow that’s a deep argument you offer in support of your opinion. Care to offer some facts that would support your position? You probably can’t because all you know how to do is cry BS.

    Apple is driven by marketing and revenue as well as controlling the user. Their policies create a love/hate relationship with their customers. They won’t do a recall like this unless they are backed into a corner. 

    I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro that was recalled due to a bad video card integration on the logic board. Sure they fixed it free of charge but it has recently failed again and they no longer support any repair.  Apparently the components were never redesigned, they just repair with the same defectively designed part.  So now my pricey machine is a pile of junk. So much for good will.
