Buzz about Apple's new MacBook Pro with Retina display has only grown since the company unveiled its high-end laptop at WWDC on June 11. Even though it may look amazing, ZDNet said MacBook repair could be more expensive than ever due to the high quality of this screen, so owners of the new laptop will need to search out the most affordable and reputable repair companies in case their device malfunctions.
“Apple has managed to pack five times as many pixels into this panel compared to the older standard-display MacBook Pro notebooks, while still managing to shave a fraction of a millimeter off the thickness,” the news source said. “To do this Apple has had to do away with the front glass on the panel – which has the advantage of cutting down glare – and used the aluminum case itself as the frame for the LCD panel.”
If the screen breaks on this device, the entire panel may have to be replaced due to the fragility of the Retina display and everything that would have to be removed or repaired.
A blog post from earlier this month on ZDNet said it would not be surprising to see a 17-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display later on as well, but users should keep warranties and the possible MacBook repair costs in mind before deciding whether to upgrade to a new device or repair their old one.
