Apple MacBook Pro Quad-core i7 teardown

Apple MacBook Pro (2011 Quad-Core i7): Box

Our 15" MacBook Pro cost just under $2,600 (US) and has the following technical specs:

  • 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
  • 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB
  • 128GB Solid State Drive
  • 8x Double-Layer SuperDrive
  • 15"HR Antiglare WS Display

Don't worry. After cracking this machine open, I'll put it back together and use it as one of our test machines.
