    Final Thoughts
    • Most components are modular and can be easily replaced once the display assembly is removed.
    • Repair-friendly stretch-release adhesive secures the battery.
    • The only screws are standard T3 Torx fasteners.
    • The display comes off first, but is thin and poorly supported. Foam adhesive makes the opening process relatively easy.
    • The myriad long, thin ribbon cables connecting the internal componentry can be obnoxious to work around, and are easy to accidentally tear.
