Rating the new Google Nexus 7 tablet a "7" out of 10 for repairability, iFixit took apart the tablet with a little difficulty; thinner, taller and narrower than the OG Google Nexus 7, the new slate has a back cover that is no longer textured and it did crack a bit using a plastic tool to pry it apart. There is light glue applied to the tablet, certainly nothing that made matters difficult...
