Five points out of 10

iFixit specialists disassembled the updated 13-inch MacBook Air based on the M3 SoC.  

Disassembly confirmed that the laptop received a 256 GB SSD (basic version), which consists of two NAND memory chips with a capacity of 128 GB each. This makes this SSD significantly faster than the M2 version, but not faster than the M1 version. 

The new product, as expected, has virtually no internal differences from the Air modification with M2.  

The laptop battery has plastic tabs for easier removal of its elements, while no glue is used for fastening, which simplifies the process. 

However, on the other hand, there are a huge number of screws and brackets, due to which the process of disassembling and then reassembling becomes not the easiest.

As a result, the new product received only 5 points out of 10 for maintainability. On the other hand, this is more than many other MacBooks of recent years.
