iFixit cracks the Google Nexus 7 open, gives it an excellent repairability score

The creative destroyers from iFixit got a hold on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, and were curious to understand whether it is as easy to repair as the Kindle Fire, which got a repairability score of 8/10. Yep, it is, since Asus is using clips instead of glue like on the iPad, so taking the first Google tablet aparts takes only a few minutes, so it got a score of 7/10...

The only negative aspect I saw in their decon, other than a off-hand mention that the heat sink could be easily torn, was that the LCD and glass are glued together, making it necessary to purchase both glass and LCD as a unit to replace either. I assume that the Kindle doesn't have that problem, which is why it got an 8.
My own personal experience is that getting LCD and glass as a kit is a lot less hassle and will probably save you some wasted time and money if your glass is well adhesed to the LCD.
