[* black] We begin removing the greatest update to the Mini: the Retina Display.
[* black] The new display may look like magic, but thankfully it's still secured with thoroughly non-magical mechanical screws. With the aid of the [product|IF145-239|Pro Tech Screwdriver Set], we dispatch them post-haste.

This Mini packs a resolution of 2048x1536—the same as its big brother, the Air.
