We'll skip tearing down the display itself—we've been down that road before—so how about a lovely X-ray instead? Here you can see the camera board with its long data cable, the solid metal Apple logo, and even the little magnets embedded in the lid for sleep/wake functionality.
We gently detach the gutted shell of the keyboard/upper case from the display, and take a closer look at the fancy new hinge system.
Sometimes seemingly standard hardware deserves an Ooh and an Ahh: These small, precision hinges are likely injection molded, allowing for thinner and more precise parts.
More importantly, more complex parts can be produced with less waste than traditional machining, which in our book makes it a win.
