Plus, you get to see all the neat internals of this thing come apart one by one, leaving the futuristic empty shell. What’s particularly valuable in iFixit teardowns though is the final repairability score and for the Nexus Q it’s an excellent 8 out of 10.
It shows just how easy it is to repair parts of it and make it work again. For the Nexus Q the obvious pluses are that you don’t need any tools to remove the top, very few components are soldered to the main board and the whole teardown process is very straightforward. Some minor things that spoil this from getting a perfect repairability score is that everything is so tightly packed inside you might find it hard to replace a particular part and there are lots of elements so you have to be careful not to lose something.
