HP's flagship workstation is called super upgradeable, and touts "tool-free serviceability." Join us to see if this machine is too good to be true, or just what the doctor ordered.
'''Full disclosure:''' Generally speaking, iFixit will only perform a teardown on a device we've sourced ourselves through normal retail channels. This gives us the most unbiased, fair assessment of a device, without giving manufacturers a chance to pretty things up for our repairability scanners.
So when HP offered to loan us their pride and joy for the teardown altar, we were hesitant. But in the end, we couldn't resist the chance to get inside this monster and see how it compares to Apple's new mini monster, the [guide|20778|Mac Pro]. So do bear in mind that this is HP's machine, most likely loaded with their magic enchantments and enhancements, and may differ from what you can buy off the $3000-workstation-PC shelf at your local electronics bazaar.
