  • The SSD is replaceable.
  • The battery is not soldered to the motherboard, but very strong adhesive makes removal and replacement a hazardous chore.
  • Non-standard connectors make for tricky display removal.
  • The display removal procedure, while difficult, and required for any repair, is not as hard as in previous generations, due to less stubborn adhesive.
  • The display assembly consists of a fused glass panel and LCD, and is difficult to remove and replace.
  • Adhesive holds many components in place, including the display and battery.
