Our colleagues at UBM TechInsights did a partial teardown of the new MacBook Pro from Apple. We have the pictures. The disassembled unit appears to be the $2799 configuration of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina screen. TechInsights did a separate teardown of the solid state drive (SSD) in the MacBook Pro, including x-ray images.
Here's what makes up the solid state drive:
- Samsung S4LJ204X01 controller (the big chip on the left).
- Samsung K9UHGY8U7A NAND chips (the four chips on the right).
- Samsung K4T2G314QF 2Gb DDR2 DRAM cache (between the controller and NAND).
