Askudra, I do whole-heartedly agree with you and every pro knows the MBP is not really a “Pro” device; its only a buzzword for marketing. Though before I continue, just take thought for a second that Apple® known as innovators have always created designs that are far more advanced then the technology available creating a conflict, and the other side is that what technology is available would be way to expensive for consumers if used which partly explains why there is always a delay on new tech from Apple®
As for the MBP lacking the needs of a Pro, I agree the loss of hardware personalization is a tragedy. The new era of Apple has lead cosmetic design to come before device functionality, a poorly designed thermal system that allow temperatures to reach 212F / 100C and cause potential hardware damage, an inefficient firmware and very soon the loss of Intel Chips…
We all suffer from the conflicts of Apple’s inability to create a MBP that meets the everyday needs of a Professional. Not sure that will ever change.
In the Second Photo, in Step 11, what are all the parts / mechanisms there in the center area in-line with the vents? I know one of them is a connector, but not sure about the rest.
In regards to the MacBook Pro internal cables/parts, can some one tell me what “Mylar BMU eDP TCON” is?
