Although there are many improvements in the interior arrangement and is considered to be easier to disassemble and repair, the new MacBook Pro still has some quite difficult points to fix. For example, 4 external batteries have white pull tabs to pull up very easily (similar to iPhone and MacBook Air), but to lift the largest battery in the middle, you have to remove the trackpad to pull the two pull tabs hidden underneath.
