    They should do a repairability score for human brain, give it 1/10 so internet trolls can start complaining how badly we are designed and so expensive to fix.

    Some things are just not meant to be taken apart.

    Could not disagree more. It isn't internet trolls who complain about whether devices such as these can be repaired - it's the general tech community and many third party businesses that repair devices for users.

    It's important to understand how easy it is to pull apart.. not everyone wants to send their devices away to be repaired, or to have to go through Apple each and every time for an Apple related product.

    If it's a tech related device - it is designed to be tinkered with, and yes, taken apart. It is what we (as tech enthusiasts) do.
