Is there a mac in Apple's current lineup where RAM and HARD DRIVE are easy to access and replace?

1. if you use an SSD boot drive you won't have to worry about it failing during the life of the machine unless you are extremely unlucky.

2. You don't need raid 1. It's better to have a decent backup.

3. If you favour a 'belt and braces' approach them use CCC or super duper to create a backup bootable drive image to an SSD drive in a USB 3.0 caddy. You can boot from that and be up and running with impressive speed instantly - you can even use it on a different mac if needed.

4. Don't worry about not being able to replace components in a computer. There are more important things to worry about that than this!
