Motorola Xoom tablet Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

There's no proprietary screws or fasteners in the machine -- everything comes out with a spudger and a couple of Torx screwdrivers.

LCD and front panel glass are not fused together. That's great news for folks unfortunate enough to drop their Xooms and crack their glass.

Individual components (like the cameras) are separately attached to the motherboard, allowing each component to be replaced on an individual basis.

By our count, there are 57 screws in the Xoom, of either the T5 or T6 Torx variety.

Everything is accessible but somewhat inconvenient to repair -- there's just a lot of labor involved with removing that many screws.
