Some of the things iFixit wants to check are the new Magic Keyboard and any additional internal components that are absent in the previous models. In a preliminary inspection, iFixit has found that the scissor switch has a similar design as that of Magic Keyboards in pre-butterfly MacBooks. The key caps were found to be replaceable, with the technician showing how a key cap could be snapped back on the laptop keyboard.

Furthermore, the video shows a hardware layout that’s more or less the same as previous MacBooks, with both memory and SSD soldered on the logic board, thus making them non-replaceable.

The full video teardown will be made available Monday, which should give viewers a more in-depth look at the newest MacBook Pro.
