Last week, iFixit took apart a Retina MacBook Pro, and, this week, the repair company takes a closer look at the display assembly. In a 16-step guide, iFixit removes literally everything from the display assembly. It's impressive to see all the films, sheets and other components that go into the LCD display.
Not surprisingly, iFixit doesn't assign a repairability score to the component because there is no way to repair the display assembly. The company concludes that "if anything in the display assembly breaks, you'll need to replace the whole thing."
