iFixit says that the Mac Pro uses no proprietary screws, and many of the units hardware can be accessed without the use of any tools whatsoever. One very unique feature of the new Mac Pro is its completely modular design. Each GPU is custom designed to fit in the enclosure and one of the GPU cards even houses the systems SSD Storage. It appears that the only issues iFixit has with the Mac Pro is the lack of expandable external storage, and users must rely on expensive Thunderbolt 2 external devices.
