iFixit Shares Mac Pro Uncasing and First Impressions

Repair site iFixit managed to get a Mac Pro on Friday, and has kicked off its traditional teardown with an uncasing and first impressions video.

The video shows the process of removing the ‌Mac Pro‌'s aluminum case and it takes a look at some of the internal components.


For those interested in a quick look at what's inside the ‌Mac Pro‌ and how the different components work, the video is worth checking out.

iFixit plans to share a full ‌Mac Pro‌ teardown next week, likely on Tuesday.

that thumbnail is viscerally disgusting and displeasing on many levels for me. This may be a bit melodramatic, but that's a really disrespectful thing to do

One of the worst ifixit vids ever created, if not the worst.

So unnecessary. People are obsessed with saying it looks like a cheese grater. It’s not even funny Lol.

You could save a lot of time by just looking at Apple's landing page for the Mac Pro. This video offers absolutely no useful information that you couldn't get elsewhere. Except for the pointless part with the cheese, I guess.

It takes FIVE minutes before they even open the thing up. Almost THREE minutes are spent on cheese.
If I go to Apple's landing page, I miss all the moaning and whining on MR about cheese on a computer. One would be forgiven for thinking iFixit was clubbing baby seals. I mean we got somebody claiming a computer was disrespected and another trotting out the feed the poor tired trope. People are unnecessarily up in their feels.

I guess I'm in the minority. But the fact that they actually grated cheese on it made me laugh my ass off.
