New MacBook teardown gives closer look at unique innards

Apple’s new MacBook is starting to arrive on doorsteps. That means it’s also landing in the hands of folks who like to tear things open to see how they work. One Chinese owner recently posted images of his teardown of the entire MacBook on the BB.Feng.com forums, and the photos provide a closer look at some of the notebook’s unique features.

This isn’t an in-depth teardown that we usually expect from the folks at iFixit, but we still get to see the new battery design, which is more modular and stepped to fit inside as much of the MacBook’s interior as possible. You’ll also note the incredibly small mainboard, home to the Intel Core M processor, and the new Force Touch trackpad, which is the copper part in the images above.

The teardown basically shows that this computer is all battery. Apple seemed to squeeze as much into it as possible, likely to balance out the power draw from the Retina display. We’ll be bringing you plenty of more information on the new MacBook as we dive deeper into our unit, but be sure to check out our unboxing to tide you over.
