Which Apple product is best? Let the market decide

Apple unveiled 2 new versions of the MacBook Pro at their recent conference. One version has a 15.4 inch screen, retina display, is 1.8 cm thick and weighs just over 2 kilos, while the other has a 15.4 inch screen without retina display, is 2.41 cm thick, and weighs 2.54 kilos.

There are other differences between the 2 models, but the real difference is found inside.

The MacBook Pro with retina display has been awarded 1 out of 10 for repairability by ifixit as it is almost impossible to upgrade or repair this MacBook yourself. It requires special tools, and as the battery and memory are glued into the body of the computer, this would not be a job for the faint-hearted!

Apple is giving its users a choice between ease of repair and extra features, and the decision that the market makes could define the future of Apple laptops.

TRIZ encourages solving contradictions, and in this case Apple is asking consumers to choose between size and adaptability.
