Just two days after launching the 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display, iFixit We put our hands on the input model (no Retina display) and completely disassembled it.
Let's go to the highlights of teardown:
- The iMac model has not changed (A1418), but its EMC number is: 2889.
- The opening of the machine continues to be done from the front, hampered by display connection cables and stickers.
- At least on the unit opened by iFixit, the Retina display provided by LG.
- Most components have not changed from the previous model.
IFixit gave this iMac a rating of just 1/10 in ?repairability?, as it is difficult to access, it has its CPU and RAM soldered to the logic board (as we have already pointed out here), absence of Fusion Drive connector and glass / LCD fused in one piece.
No surprise, no news

IFixit made a huge mess of publishing this disassembly ahead of the Retina 4K display model. We publish a new article about him here.
