The world’s first live Mac teardown

At Macworld, the guys from iFixit take apart a MacBook Air in less than nine minutes

With a spudger, two Torx and a pentalobe screwdriver, Luke Soules stripped down Apple's (aapl) thinnest computer Friday before an audience of a couple hundred Macworld attendees in 8 minutes and 40 seconds.

It was the world's first live teardown, according to Kyle Wiens, CEO of iFixit, a repair shop that claims to sell more Apple parts than any company but Apple.

"I absolutely love getting inside these things," says Wiens, who co-founded the company with Soules in their Cal Poly dorm room in 2003.
