Notes

  • LG Watch Urbane Teardown

    Just replace the entire case with the display, it's pointless to peel them apart.

  • Retina Macbook 2015 Teardown

    Just replace the bottom case with the battery together. I don't see why you guys are so determined to pull the battery off the case when replacing it, it's just a cheap stupid metal bottom.

    Also pentalobe screws are no longer "proprietary" when you can get 10 for like 1 dollar.

    Apart from those. I agree this thing gets no more than 1 score on repairability though

    Speakers and antennas are not so expensive either, but they are easily removable so not a problem.

  • PlayStation Vita Wi-Fi Antenna Replacement

    Why is it the wifi antenna if the cable is connected to the cellular board? it is the primary cellular antenna. the wifi antenna is the 2 small antennas in the upper half of the back case
