[* black] RejoiceHuzzah! The M1 iMac is still sealed withuses the classic iMac adhesive, notrather than the goopy iPad nightmare that we feared.
[* icon_note]
This splittable foam adhesive has been our go-to recommendation for exterior adhesive since we first encountered it (we still recommend stretch release adhesive for internal stuff)in the [guide|11936|2012 iMac|new_window=true].
[* black] Easy heat-freeThe opening procedure itself isn't so familiar, however. We use our handy-dandy cutting wheel entry was scary at first,wheel, but the clearance at the top is a bit tighter, there's atighter.
[* icon_note] A
plastic display frame with screw post bulges that slot(maybe need a better name for these lol) slots into the metal frame (yay for easy screen alignment) soframe. This makes display alignment easier, but it feels like you're maybe hitting antennas, but it's actually really protected! Thin adhesive allantennas with the cutting wheel. Fortunately, everything is very well protected around the way around, great!perimeter.
[* black] CablesWe slowly open the display and wait for any bobby traps, but all the cables connect at the bottom with enough slack (similar to iMac pro) to open, stillwith no annoying top cables, yaycables at the top!
[* black] Boom full reveal! It's empty! Thefeeling a bit empty in here—the screen takes up most of the space,space and nearly half the weight (44%!), allof the whole unit. All that's left is slim (pun intended) pickings.
[* blackicon_note] We can't wait to take a look at those radiator-looking bits, could they be speaker chambers?
