Non-Upgradeable MacBook Pro Receives Criticism

The technology world held their breath last week as Apple delivered their new Macbook Pro, with features including a stunning retina display and much thinner profile. Although it has been described as "the most beautiful computer" that Apple have ever created, the world's largest company is already facing fierce criticism for the new model's status as 'not upgradeable'. What was originally toted by Steve Jobs in 2009 as an accessible, repairable machine which could be modified to suit the user's needs, now has a glued-in battery which costs $200 to repair, and RAM memory which is soldered to the logic board, making future upgrades impossible.

There is speculation among experts that if this model is successful among consumers, Apple's next Macbook Pro, and even their other lines, may become even less upgradeable and repairable still. Many users will not be able to deal with having 8GB of RAM to last them until they need to upgrade their entire laptop, and experts are advocating that if consumers are to buy a Macbook Pro, they make it one of the older models, where upgrading the memory is possible.

Data Memory Systems is a US provider of computer memory for both Apple and PC products, with a wide selection of Macbook Pro memory that can be utilised within the older models in the series. With the new models hitting the market starting at $2199, it is now entirely possible to buy an older version for a lower price and upgrade it to similar specifications by adding RAM memory.

The Apple memory upgrades available from Data Memory Systems are generally available in 2GB, 4GB or 8GB kits, with some 16GB kits available for certain models. The vast majority of the kits are separated into two parts, for example, an 8GB kit would contain two twin 4GB upgrades, in accordance with Apple's recommendation that their dual-channel memory architecture is upgraded with the same amount of memory at the same time. This improves performances markedly, and with these powerful upgrades available for just $52.00, renovating an existing Macbook Pro can provide formidable results.

Data Memory Systems also stock a wide variety of standard Macbook memory, with 18 different models to choose from. The 2GB, 4GB and 8GB kits can make an older model feel brand new, and with lifetime warranties on many of the upgrade kits, there need be no worries about future upgrades. A 4GB upgrade for a standard Macbook is available for just $59.50.
