[* black] iMac 21.5" EMC 2544 Repairability Score: '''3 out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair)
[* green] You can still replace the RAM, hard drive, and CPU inside this machine.
[* red] The glass and LCD are now fused together, and there are no more magnets holding the glass in place. That means it's heatgun time!
[* red] Most replaceable components (like the RAM) are buried behind the logic board, meaning you'll have to take apart most of the iMac just to gain access to them.
[* red] Budget-minded folks can no longer add a second hard drive to the base iMac unless they are super-fond of soldering missing proprietary connectors onto the logic board.
[* red] You'll have to masterfully peel off the old double-sided sticky tape and apply new tape in order to reseal this iMac into original condition.
