If we've learned one thing after five years of Surfacing, it's how to open these things.

Our well-used iOpener brings the heat, then a suction handle and opening picks (just a few this time) attack the ample adhesive.

We encounter the same kind of goopy glue as before, but the smaller, sturdier display makes the opening procedure seem a little less scary.

The display's off, and we're pleased to see that Microsoft allowed it a fairly long leash.

A long display cable makes it easier to disconnect the display without damaging the cable, for safer and easier display removal.
