- You should apply new thermal paste to the heat sink and stop using the laptop until you do.
- Reinstall OS X. You are having software issues.
- The graphics card is integrated with the logic board, and all of the logic boards have the same type. You won't be able to upgrade the graphics card.
- There are no differences at all between them. Go ahead and use the 2011 case.
- You can try lubricating the fan with a light oil. Just pull the blade assembly off the fan and put oil on the pin. However, you should replace the fan as the lubrication doesn't last long.
- Try restoring, and if that doesn't work then you have a broken backlight.
- Make sure that all removable parts of the logic board such as RAM and the airport card are removed. Then, take out all the screws that you see on the logic board.
- The only thing that is semi-interchangeable are the side buttons, and even those don't work great as the colors are different.
- I believe it does. you should put it back in the frame for testing.
- It's the board. If both the keyboard/trackp
ad and the logic board aren't working, it's not worth fixing. It's probably a better idea at this point to buy a new one.

@thomas adhesive like this is an automatic lowering and although it has a replaceable battery, that won't help if anything else breaks.
I find it hard to believe that there is any need to use adhesive for the battery. The battery has enough space to have screw mounts.
Why didn't you do a teardown of the controller or the Kinect?
I think the repairability score is too high. The iPads get lower repairability scores, yet the batteries are not soldered on, the glass and display are not fused together, and there are more removable components.
